Correct X.log

And let's try that again while I'm not being stupid, attached X.log file from a
system where I didn't pass that parameter in question.. doh.

Almost certainly a radeon bug.

Comment 4 Will Woods 2007-05-22 13:53:18 UTC
This isn't a regression from FC6, and we have a workaround, so I'm moving this
off the blocker list. We may need a release note / CommonBugs entry about this
for F7, though.

Comment 5 David Nielsen 2007-06-26 12:57:35 UTC
Since this has persisted since FC6 I'm setting this to block F8

Comment 6 Adam Jackson 2007-08-27 18:00:09 UTC
Would be good to get a test of this with f8t2 or so.  There's a new radeon
driver that has a good chance of either making this work, or breaking it completely.

Comment 7 David Nielsen 2007-09-16 16:03:05 UTC
I tested with F8 test 2 and is anaconda no longer garbled, closing.
