why should it have gone to 2.0?
because you are using hardware with a blob-driver?
Actually, I'm using the open source radeon driver, with a 4.9 kernel.
I would expect that to work without alteration if X 1.19 was compatible
with X 1.18.
no, you are at your own - there is no reason to run a NON-RELEASED
fedora-version with binary drivers and in fact no reason to use
hardware which won't work out of the box in 2016 - said from someonbe
who is using proper hardware on Fedora for many years
In rawhide, with 1.19, there are graphics issues. In F25, with 1.18,
there are no issues. Same hardware. In F25, with 1.19 the same issues
as appear in rawhide occur. That to me is backward incompatibility,
and should be flagged via the version number. YMMV
why in the world do you play around with F25 when your hardware
depends on a commercial vendor where Linus had the right sign long
That's why I switched to amd graphics. I can use the latest kernels
without worrying about drivers.
