Same here.

Anyway, back to the original problem of seeing my old laptop with NVidia
GeForce FX 5600 graphics work with F17.

I tried the following live cds with these results:

    Fedora 15 i686 Live:            graphics work
    Fedora 16 i686 Live:            graphics work
    Fedora 17-alpha i686 Live:  graphics fail

So whatever got broken appeared to happen between F16 and F17 - at least
for my FX card.

Question then would be, can I do a yum upgrade to go from F16 to F17 or
F18 if things aren't fixed for F17?
