Re: X fails to start after recent update

| From: Andrew Kelly <akelly corisweb org>

| Same problem here, also running F 10 on X86-66 and with an Asus EAH3650

Actually, you are hitting a different problem.  One I hit earlier.  I
mentioned this one in my message:

Please add anything you can to the bugzilla entry.  I presume that it
will be taken more seriously if more than one person reports
experiencing it.

| can't look back at the moment

That isn't the best way to work around the problem.  By downgrading
the .rpm, you are still in known territory.  And you aren't lying to
the package manager.

You can fetch old versions of each package from koji.  Here's the page
for this package:
