I just upgraded my FC12 and now the X is unusable, due to "improvements" in
the radeon driver. I tried using video= and xdriver= boot options, is there
any way to restore this to slow but usable operation, or should I just roll
back and reinstall an older release?

The mouse is totally unresponsive, system gets 2-3k int/sec from something,
and Wifi stopped working. So far this release is 2 for 11 on my systems, the
others have been rolled back to FC11.

Try adding "nomodeset" to grub to disable KMS. "vga= " and other video
options should be able to take effect afterwards.

Turns out the current release is too broken on my hardware to use, the touchpad fails after a few seconds regardless. Thanks much for the input, I was looking at the wrong issue, apparently, I couldn't use the system enough to evaluate the change.
