graphics (X, SVGATextMode, DOSEMU) fail

graphics (X, SVGATextMode, DOSEMU) fail

For some reason any program that attempts to use graphics fails. I have
Caldera OpenLinux 1.3. If I run dosemu-0.98.5 with graphics support it
crashes. If I run SVGATextMode it gives me a seg fault. If I run X windows
I get:

_X11TransSocketUNIXConnect: Can't connect: errno = 111
giving up.
xinit:  Connection refused (errno 111):  unable to connect to X server
xinit:  No such process (errno 3):  Server error.

However, I can set the video mode to 80x43 by adding vga=2 in
/etc/lilo.conf. Anyway, this all happened after I recompiled the kernel
(2.0.35). Any ideas?

1. DOSEMU + SVGATextMode = Bust Monitor

The subject-line says it all:  Essentially, I seem to have a conflict
between the video mode set up by SVGATextMode and the 80x25 mode set up
by the emulator.  If I try switching VC's, or exit the emulator, my video
mode becomes corrupted.  I got around this by blindly running
SVGATextMode again, which worked fine until my monitor finally packed it

  I've learned (the hard way) from this experience, and now no longer use
SVGATextMode when I run the emulator.  I've played around with direct
port access, and the graphics enable section of /etc/dosemu.conf.  None
of these give satisfactory results.

  As an aside, I'm using a Cirrus card on an ELF-based system.  A
previous Trident 8900 card worked without problem.

  Any-one experience the same and have a fix for it?
