A new test release of XFree86 (XFree86-4.1.0-0.9.10) is now

This release has been made in order to test bug fixes, and other
updates and enhancements, etc. that have been applied to the XFree86
packages since the last public release.

Disclaimer:  This release is an unofficial unsupported "test" release
which should not be used on critical production systems or systems 
containing important data.  Use these software packages completely
at your own risk.

If you experience any problems with this release, please fill out
a complete bug report against the "XFree86" component of "Rawhide"
using the Red Hat bugzilla bug tracking system located at:


Be sure to attach to the bugzilla report a full copy of your XFree86
configuration file /etc/X11/XF86config-4, as well as any XFree86 
error logs from /var/log/XFree86.?.log as this will help speed up the
troubleshooting process.

Also, to avoid duplication of effort, please be sure to query the 
bugzilla database first to make sure the problem has not been 
reported by someone else already.  If you do find a report similar
to the problem you are having, please add information to that report
rather than filing a new bug report.

DO *NOT* SEND BUG REPORTS IN VIA EMAIL - they will most likely be
deleted and ignored.  Due to the volume of email received, as well as
many other factors, it is not possible to handle email bug reports in
a unified and organized manner, which is why bugzilla has been put in

If a bug is important to you, please take the time to fill out a 
proper bug report if you'd like the problem addressed.  The idea here
is to "Help us to help you."  Remember: "If it is not in bugzilla, 
it is not a bug."

That said, the new test packages are available, as always, on my
personal public ftp space located at:


Thanks for your participation in our development process!
