The following command fails
Curiously I've now got the resolution I had originally by editing the
xorg.conf using display setting from an xorg.conf file saved by the
proprietary driver used in Fedora 11 and specifying the PCI Bus ID to
the appropriate graphics hardware. This is not an easy solution to
implement, and I suspect it's because I have a hSLi hardware
This is where I'd have liked to have been after the upgrade in the first
place. But I won't be upgrading my PC to Fedora 12 until the proprietary
drivers are available, as these provide openGL support.
Again, thanks for your help Rahul, and of course thanks to all those
whose advice to others has been invaluable to me.
