fedora 6 test 3 intel 950GM support


I'm have a problem with a new laptop that has a Intel Graphics Media Accelerator 950 running on FC5, I can't get it to display 1280x800. So I would like to know if fc6 test 3 has support for intel 950GM before I install it.
Thanks

At tip for 915, 830 and so on is google for 855resolution.
and 1280x800 is not a big deal to adjust will have this problem also with FC7.
Suse 11 and Slackware 12
So you'll have to configure the modeline
like this for e.g.
Code:
Section "Monitor"
Identifier "Monitor0"
VendorName "Monitor Vendor"
ModelName "Monitor Model"
HorizSync 31.5- 64
VertRefresh 59-76
Option "IgnoreEDID" "1"
Modeline "1280x800@60" 83.91 1280 1312 1624 1656 800 816 824 841
EndSection
regards
