Re: mga driver improved by user compiled 1.4.2 version of the driver

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.

Thanks for the catch on the reference to the extras location. I knew he was referring to updates since it is part of core. I'm too used to referring to Extras to get programs and didn't realize I referred to extras instead of updates.
.
linux xdriver=vesa
yum update to pull in the new driver.
run system-config-display or X -configure after the updates are applied and we're off. Providing the fix quickly after the release should stifle some of the reports. For users that do not monitor the list, there probably will be tons of reports. (if printed to paper)

cheers
