Thanks for the quick reply. I don't see anything relevant to this in
the fedora-list archives. Maybe I'm missing something? It surprises me
that nobody else has reported this problem, since it's so repeatable and
specific - boot with a 2.6.9 kernel and all is well, boot with 2.6.10
and the display is nasty. Maybe something to do with the specific
display drivers (i830 under X11)? I don't know if they have anything to
do with rhgb.
I can disable rhgb for now, yes, but I'd like to sort out where the
problem really lies. I've compared boot logs for the two kernels, and I
don't see any relevant differences. I hate to just give up and disable
functionality because of a kernel upgrade. :-)
