Michael, I added to your report. It appears that I am running X with no
xorg.conf at all.

I only have an 87% completed install, so I cannot verify that xorg.conf
is only visible to root. I can only access root in runlevel 1.

I agree that the MGA driver should be fixed. I was forced to do a text
install because my display would go out of range in GUI mode. The
selection menus in the text install for customizing packages was out of

See bug below for details.

I read a comment regarding filing bugs upstream for xorg-x11 instead of
at bugzilla.redhat.com - I do not agree with this approach. xorg-x11 is
a big project with many distributions using it. Individual bug reports
upstream vs. reporting bugs at the distribution level will not do a user
of the distribution much good. At least each bug should be forwarded
upstream and tracked at the distribution level.

I don't like the broken MGA problem but lived through the broken i810
problem. I kind of enjoy the problems with some components for the
learning experience.

Anyway, the major failure for the MGA driver for me during post-install
was mode switching causing out of range. I will check out this problem
after sending this mail and reading the remaining test-list mail.

I do think that FC6 should be postponed from release without a
regression that fixes the driver to allow those running with MGA video
cards to install graphically and run the GUI after installation. (No
matter what percentage is finished installing.
