Ok. Here's the situation. I installed Fedora 9 last night (64-bit) and everything was running great. I have a Thinkpad T61 with the x3100 GMA. Tried the i810 driver but that was a no-go so I left it at the intel driver and it's working great for me...until I installed openSuSE 11. When I booted back into Fedora, I couldn't read anything. All fonts showed up looking like a variety of |||. I dropped down into a console and changed the driver to vesa. Restarted X and it's working fine.
I was wondering if anyone might no why it's doing this? The only thing that the two systems share is swap. I don't know if this is a dual-install issue. I've never seen this before. I've quadruple booted on my desktop. Not having the intel driver doesn't bother me. I have my 1680x1050 resolution, so I'm happy. Just trying to get to the bottom of this. Hopefully, someone here knows what's going on. Thanks.
