What is the status of this bug:
Furthermore, why doesn't a blocker bug actually "block" anything?

Maybe it's a configuration issue... I don't know.
It doesn't help that no comments have been posted since I attached the 
required data.

My point is - for me it is definitely *not* a feature that FC5 will be 
unusable out of the box. Arjan's assurance that it's "just a matter of 
time before it is broken again" sounds very disturbing to me. Fedora 
should be aiming to provide the opposite assurance - "things will work 
most of the time". I fail to see why it's a good thing when 3D drivers 
have been broken for a large percent of the Linux user base.
