Well I have it all up and running now. Few issues with the X config
still and no wireless but other than that all seems to be working
fairly well.

Does anyone know if theres a rpm with the i810 modesetting test
driver, or alternatively can give me the commands to check the branch
out of the git repo. I use the following commands:
git clone git://git.freedesktop.org/git/xorg/driver/xf86-video-intel
git branch modesetting
git pull

But there seems to be conflicts between the different branches. I
don't care about the mainline branch and how it conflicts with the
modesetting branch as I just want to use it to compile up a driver to
fix the issues that my 1440X900 screen is sitting there doing
1024x768.

Other than the usual evolution with evolution-connector isn't working
or crashing after 5 minutes it all looks pretty sweet!

Cheers,
Pete
