Exclamation Kernel update today ( = white screen

title self-explanatory, so wtf?
i can get to gdm, but when gnome kicks in, its over.

running mesa-dri-drivers & mesa-dri-drivers-experimental (7.8.1-8) on ati radeon x1250


ok, update:

googling threw this:
so the actual culprit is compiz.
Followed the example there, got from http://koji.fedoraproject.org/koji/p...fo?packageID=8, installed via rpm -ivh, and got my system working again.

but i reaaally have to set my voice of complain in the matter.
what are the updates guys thinking, pushing a system-breaker update like this? with this problem documented since mid-july.
ASUS g74sx-bbk7 -- Fedora 17 x64
Intel CORE i7 2630QM @2GHz // nVidia GeForce GTX 560M 2GB // 8GB DDR3 1333 MHz SDRAM // 2 x 500GB 7,200rpm
