Then run fedora core 6 test/rawhide, or if your truly not capable, compile
the srpm's your self? :-)

Actually, I, for one, can't wait to get Xorg 7.1 for FC5. I have a 
radeon card in my system and will benefit from the progress made to the 
radeon driver in 7.1. ATI's binary driver does not work as well as the 
floss driver for me. Sure I'm missing 3D atm, but at least I can keep my 
system up and running for days and days, suspending and resuming without 
too much hassle.
