Its a shame to blight a good distro by giving non expert users such grief
setting up a simple thing as the display.
Agreed! And I have the opensource intel.....which installed perfectly with
xubuntu. Wonder when it will work out of the box with fedora.....
Where'd you get the Intel opensource? I've been over to

    http://intellinuxgraphics.org

and they have source but tell you to go to your 'neighborhood linux distro' for precompiled packages. I don't think there's one for Intel + FC6, is there?

I updated mine using the development (for f8) and it works...it will eventually
show up on F7 and perhaps FC6 unless they stop supporting it before then.

I see two packages:

xorg-x11-drv-i810-2.1.1-3.fc8.i386.rpm xorg-x11-drv-i810-devel-2.1.1-3.fc8.i386.rpm

under fedora/linux/development/i386/os/Packages on the various mirrors. Which did you use?

(Getting excited, hopefully not prematurely, been wrestling with this for weeks....)
