Mike, can I assume that these name changes such as /etc/X11/XF86Config to
/etc/X11/xorg.conf are consitent with what other distribution switching from
XFree86 to xorg-x11?

I have an "everything install" system that I just updated to xorg-x11-6.7.0
(plus s-c-d) and there were not complaints from up2date so the Fedora Core
appears to be clean.
However, when I tried booting, I got a X startup error that it could not
access /dev/mem. I then installed the previous versions of the packages and
everything worked again. Since my config and other files were not renamed,
is that the problem or is it something else that Dan Walsh is looking into.
I have not submitted a bugzilla report since Dan seemed to be aware of the
problem and was working on it.
