It definitely is - confirmed this last night with the i686/x86_64 Live CDs -
both of which run perfectly. So either there is something borked on this install
or it's been broken by a post-beta update (I had updates from a local mirror
enabled during the install as this had been working great for me on other
machines so far).

Thanks - I'm usually OK at basic troubleshooting for X but I was puzzled here as
I couldn't even get a basic VESA display up (without the intel driver
complaining it was about to catch fire..).

I'll poke this some more and report back.
