Test Out The New Intel, NVIDIA, ATI Linux Drivers
As part of their usual roundabout with pushing the latest X.Org, kernel, and Mesa code into Fedora before each new release, for the next three days Red Hat is holding testing sessions focused on the open-source ATI/AMD, NVIDIA, and Intel graphics drivers, respectively. To make for an easy process even for those that may not be active Fedora users, there are Rawhide LiveCD images (in x86 and x86_64 flavors) that were spun last night by Red Hat's Adam Williamson. This code has all of the latest Fedora 12 packages, but sadly just shy of having the R600/700 3D support working.
Interested users can fire up the Fedora LiveCD and report whether mode-setting, X-Video, RandR, DPMS, 3D support, fast user switching, VT switching, suspend-and-resume, and Render is working with your given hardware and the latest Linux drivers whether you are using the Radeon, Nouveau, or Intel drivers.
The Fedora Wiki has more information on the Radeon, Nouveau, and Intel test days.
