It is working in FC9 with nv driver, it was working in FC7 with nvidia
driver from livna, it was working in FC6 with ATI driver, for some
time it had been working in FC7 but success was related to release of
GE and intel driver.
I had no time to test in FC8 as I switched immediately to rawhide (I.e. FC9).
