  I had problems with G45 too, but they were fixed during last Fedora
Rawhide cycle and Fedora 10 works OK. Not perfect yet -- activating
Compiz brings X into infinite loop after few minutes. Metacity
compositor seems to work OK.

  With Fedora you get additional benefit of tracking latest version of
DRM/DRI and other important stuff.
