I am using Fedora-10 Linux ( 64bit version ) on computer using G45 based motherboard: Asus P5Q-EM. Kernel version is,  intel driver version 2.5.0, xorg-1.5.3, mesa-7.2 , libdrm-2.4, VGA connector. In about 50% of cases computer hangs while switching from textual to graphical mode. It happens during boot, shutdown, user switch etc. When it boots successfully there are not problems during X session but computer can hang during shutdown/reboot when X is shutdown. I use WindowsXP on the same computer without such problems so it is probably not a faulty hardware. Xorg.0.log is attached. There is no xorg.conf ( Fedora 10 uses some sort of autoconfiguration ). I tried update rpm for the intel driver that Fedora issued a couple of days ago, but it didn't help. 

I'll appreciate if you could give some advice how to overcome this problem.

Do you know if the composite window manager (compiz) enabled? If so, this is bug#18879.

No it isn't. Actually my problem resembles the one in the bug#17235 and https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=461171. It happens when X starts up during boot or shuts down during logout/shutdown/reboot from KDE/GNOME session.

Looks this should be retested against kernel and xf86-video-intel that has our GTT mem range fix for G45. Try xf86-video-intel 2.5.1 or 2.6 -rc1. Not sure if fc10 kernel included that fix, or you might try 2.6.28-rc9 kernel.

I think Fedora 10 should have included "GTT mem range fix for G45". I agree this dup with bug#17235.
