Mass update of -test bugs to update version to fc4.
(Please retest on final release, and report results if you have not already done


Comment 2 John Reiser 2005-06-27 23:44:47 UTC
Booting FC4 final release kernel-2.6.11-1.1369_FC4 on Mac mini (PowerPC32) now
goes farther.  However, X11 still does not start.  The symptom is now the same
as reported in bug #158922: no screens found [(EE) Screen(s) found, but none
have a usable configuration.]

Comment 3 Dave Jones 2005-06-28 00:21:09 UTC
Ok, that sounds more like an X/system-config-display bug, so I'll close this one
out as the hang is fixed.

Thanks for retesting.
