  at this point, i have to agree.  i've been on fedora for several
releases but if i can't get minimally functional video drivers that
don't lock up my desktop every 15-30 minutes, it's time to move on and
find something that works.  life is too short to spend hours messing
with this and reporting to bugzilla only for nothing to happen.
