Fedora 12 graphics issues
 
It's interesting to look at some of the issues that Fedora is having with graphics -
there's a huge thread titled
"Fedora 12 Graphics Issues: Cancel F13 and concentrate on fixing F12 ?"
on fedora-devel.
https://www.redhat.com/archives/fedora-devel-list/2009-November/thread.html

While it looks like a lot of their issues are still due to the proprietary nvidia
driver, another thing that I take away from this is that 3d support is slim and
somewhat broken in nouveau and because of that compositing is disabled in F12
(possibly only for KDE, I'm unsure from the context):

Right, this is known - nouveau is a replacement for the current free nv
driver; you still want the evil binary crap if you want 3D on many
cards.
