I fully realize that. Graphics in general were severely 
broken in Fedora 11 and it was not the fault of Fedora. 
Fedora is a cutting edge distribution, which is one 
among a number of reasons why I choose and stick with 
it, but this means that sometimes things don't work 
(not to the point of making the system unusable, of 
course, but necessitating disabling features 
temporarily). X, Mesa, KMS, Intel were all in utter 
disarray and none the fault of Fedora -- Fedora 11 just 
happened to come out during this period of instability. 
Unfortunately for users of Fedora 11, the now working X 
Server has not been made available, which is why I 
migrated to Fedora 12. Fedora 12 rocks! All of the 
stuff that was in a transitional state since the 
springtime has now really come of age! And that 
includes KDE, the skeletal state of which didn't help 
Fedora 11 much. This is going to be a killer release!
