Thanks to a Fedora user for compiling a version of the xorg driver and packaging it within a source and binary and supplying a link to the tar version for the source.

Is there any way to get this version into FC6 before it is released?

No, frozen, etc.  I can pop it into updates though.

- ajax

Thanks! I've been using the user supplied version for awhile and it seems to work great compared to the previous version that went out of range for both the installation attempts and for resolution "downshifting".

Adding this to extras will be fine. xdriver=vesa will be a popular posting on the Fedora List though for those trying to install. Then they'll have to update to the new driver, run s-c-display to get mga vs. vesa after install.

No, that's not what he said. We're not moving the mga driver to extras anytime soon. As you may have read elsewhere on this this, FC6 is deeply frozen and will be released in a few days, so we can't fix mga this late in the game. Other than that, you're right, it will be annoying for mga users and we will likely see a lot of bugs for this. The fixed driver will be available as an fc6 update when fc6 is available, all you need to do is to say 'yum update' and run system-config-display as you mention.
