Default 96.43.10 Beta

I have the GeForce4 MX 4000 running dual head video. Worked OK with 96.43.07 on Fedora 8 up to end-of-life. Did the upgrade to Fedora 10. Running kernel 2.6.27.15-170.2.24.fc10.i686. Loaded 96.43.10 Beta and built kernel driver. That worked and it installed. Running KDE4.0. VBIOS version 04.18.20.32.15. Two problems:
1. A bit hard to get the graphical log-in screen on primary monitor, second comes up, have to ctrl-alt-backspace once or twice then I can log in. Won't shut down right either.

2. If you ctrl-alt-number key to a text console, the cursor is stuck one spot on the screen and the screen will not scroll up as text goes off the bottom. You have to switch to a different console and back to see what scrolled off the screen.

Other than the above, once you get running, it seems to work fine in the GUI.

Same problem on 96.43.11.

Gave up on Fedora 10, Loaded Fedora 8 off hard disk backup, loaded 96.43.11 on Fedora 8 with 2.6.26.8-57.fc8-i686 kernel and all works well there.

Go figure, maybe I'll just wait until I can afford to buy a new PC with newer CPU and video cards and then retry the newer distros. Now if this economy quits taking a you know what, maybe I can replace my old PC.
