    not really strange, the intel code wasn't rebased on GEM in time.

    We'll be doing an update for F10 hopefully to allow it to be enabled by the user fully.

    the vga=0x line only provides some of the benefits, you don't get the smooth transitions or flicker free bits.

    hmm it seems strange that it would be disabled for intel.

    oh well, nevermind, i'm already reinstalling arch linux on that box - the only semi-user-friendly linux distro that doesn't have issues with built-in r8168 network chip on that mainboard :/

    it does not seem to work for me on d954gclf2 integrated mainboard.
    i only get a text-mode screen with white progress bar on the bottom, unless i am missing something

    (it's my 1st time trying out fedora, that might explain some things ;-) ).

    When it's done, the sun thing jumps to fill a third of the screen without any kind of real transition. It'd be more polished if it stayed where it was and the login dialog quickly faded in.

    Fedora 10's KDM looks much better than GDM.

    Phoronix: The KMS, Plymouth Experience In Fedora 10

    Fedora generally lives on the bleeding-edge of free software packages -- especially when it comes to the Linux kernel and X.Org -- and with yesterday's release of Fedora 10 Cambridge this is no different. Fedora 9 was the first of the major distributions to integrate any level of kernel mode-setting support (A Preview of Kernel-based Mode-Setting) and this support has been well-extended in this latest Red Hat release. Fedora 10 includes a kernel mode-setting driver for ATI Radeon graphics cards (primarily the R500 series) and there are other KMS improvements too...
