Fedora Updated package.
Fedora Update Notification

Product     : Fedora Core 4
Name        : xorg-x11
Version     : 6.8.2                      
Release     : 37.FC4.45                  
Summary     : The basic fonts, programs and docs for an X workstation.
Description : X11 is an open source implementation of the X Window System.  It
provides the basic low level functionality which full fledged
graphical user interfaces (GUIs) such as GNOME and KDE are designed

Update Information:

This new release of xorg-x11 provides a number of bug
fixes to the previous release, including:

- Fix for the infamous "libvgahw" bug, which was caused
  by a gcc compiler bug.  Many users were affected by this
  issue, exhibiting symptoms such as X server crash or
  corrupted display during OS installation or during X
  server startup after performing a text mode install.
  Green or blue border/banding on screen for mga and
  some other hardware.  A variety of video hardware that
  was affected by this issue should now work.  Some users
  may still experience problems with similar sounding
  symptoms after this update, and should query bugzilla
  to find out if the particular issue is already
  reported in a separate bug, or file a new report
  if they still experience problems.

- A problem with the Dutch keyboard layout has been

- The open source "nv" driver for Nvidia hardware has been
  updated to the latest version.  Additionally, a
  workaround has been added to the driver to disable known
  unstable acceleration primitives on some GeForce
  6200/6600/6800 models.

- Several bugs have been fixed in the Xnest X server.

- DRI is now enabled by default on all ATI Radeon hardware
  except for the Radeon 7000/Radeon VE chipsets, which
  is known to be unstable for many users currently when
  DRI is enabled.  Radeon 7000 users can re-enable DRI
  if desired by using Option "DRI" in the device
  section of the config file, with the understanding that
  we consider it unstable currently.

- The config space handling code in the X server has been
  updated to avoid PCI config space contention issues
  between the X server and the kernel.  This resolves a
  number of bugs that have been reported to us concerning
  transient system lockups during OS startup on certain
  systems containing certain specific hardware

Fedora Core 4 users are encouraged to update to this new
release, and report any regressions in bugzilla.

- Fix FC5 spec file typo for virtual libGL Requires in -devel subpackage

* Tue Jul 12 2005 Mike A. Harris  6.8.2-43

  referenced in bug (#162246)

- Added xorg-x11-6.8.2-libvgahw-workaround-rh161242.patch to attempt to work
  around bug (#161242, 162274, 153729, 159106, 160500, 161047, 160470,
  160453, 160307, 160777, 151688, 154502, 161566, 160950, 160580, 157556,
