Description Jason Farrell 2008-07-03 01:20:13 UTC
Description of problem:
Updating to xorg-x11-drv-i810-2.3.2-1.fc9.x86_64 in updates-testing fails to
install because the %pre script continually fails. It tries to replace 'i810'
with 'intel' in /etc/xorg.conf, but fails completely if it doesn't match.

I am hit by this one too.

I guess it's caused by this change

* Tue May 27 2008 Adam Jackson <> 2.2.1-25
- s/i810/intel/ in xorg.conf in %%pre so we can eventuall stop installing
  the BC symlink.

which was useful for version prio 2.2.1-24 but it might cause the fail.

Release -2 fixes this issue. New version was successfully installed.
