This is true, but to the extent that some people can't use the recent kernel 
until a working video driver is available, it is a Fedora issue. Updates which 
have security implications really shouldn't have to run in R/L 3 as text only. I 
don't need 3D accelerated anythings to run a few simple xterms and load 
monitoring, but not having X at all is an upgrade stopper. I'm running radeon, 
but more than a few systems which ran well on FC9 need to use VESA modes or even 
a laptop a VNC. The support for ATI and Nvidia hardware only a few years old is 
spotty at best.

Good suggestion, though, he won't get any help here.
