What is the nature of bug?
X doesn't start? X goes down after a while? garbled display?


Anaconda found that my computer has a Nvidia VGA hardware and even called it the right model! I was happy and hoped it would carry on but when I rebooted it has the same 800X600 off center x-windows that it had with F7 when it was new. So it seems there has been no work on setting up a new version of Fedora capable of working with Nvidia hardware. That will be my bug.

What model of video card and what model of monitor? (Skewed video is sometimes the problem of X getting the wrong data from the monitor. Some older monitors gave back totally bjorked DCC data.)

The monitor is a 17 inch liquid crystal 5 years old. The Nvidia hardware is not important. On both F7 and F8 I have to go to the Nvidia web page and d/l the bash file that works good. Then I run it on now 3 versions of Fedora and it makes the proper kernel module and now the x window image is 1200x1300 and centered on the screen and many of the nice Nvidia features work on Linux.
