Fedora Core Today, Fedora 11 will be unleashed upon the web. The release has been postponed for a few days, but this time it's for real. It comes packed with lots of changes, such as improved boot time, Nouveau as the default NVIDIA driver, and of course the latest and greatest version of various open source packages.

Intel 855 chipset is an epic fail both with and without nomodeset. There is a ton of bug reports regarding this and nothing has been happening for several weeks.

There are some possible workarounds posted here:

That's not, in fact, true. The 855 bugs had huge activity going up to release (one of them was one of the reasons for one of the release slips), and they were actually fixed. 855, according to multiple reports, now works well, with modesetting: the cursor and opengl-related bugs were all fixed.
