Graphics Test Week final stretch: Intel

Graphics Test Week moves into its final stretch today / tomorrow
(depending where you are!) with Intel graphics Test Day -
<a href="https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Test_Day:2010-09-30_Intel" title="https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Test_Day:2010-09-30_Intel">https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Test_Day:2010-09-30_Intel</a> . As with the
others, this event runs all day in #fedora-test-day on Freenode IRC, and
testing instructions and live images (same as for the other two days)
are on the Wiki page. Intel graphics users, please come out and help us
make sure Fedora 14's graphics support is as good as it can be!

I'm really busy right now and maybe I won't be able to participate, but it
will be great
if someone can test an Intel GMA 3100 (This is the graphics card I use in
F13)
because it doesn't support very well the Kwin Effects enabled and in VMWare
Player
I'm not able to have Aero Support inside a Virtual Windows 7 because the 3D
capabilities
are not "recognized" by the system... This issues are not present in other
distros (Kubuntu, OpenSUSE, Mandriva)
in their last versions even in LiveCD mode (where I can have a Transparent
KDE for example) and the computer is not slow.

I believe there is a problem with Fedora's support to my graphics card.

Hope someone can help to fix it in future releases...

It's worth noting that none of the test day tests actually covers the
things Manuel was worried about. Thanks for testing though :)
