Hey guys.. problem
I've just configured Xf86
startx sometimes shows me the xclock ( and sometimes the defaut
xterms) then quits.... on other ocations startx works jsut fine.
Even here however I get malloc errors... (this I can understand
as Im running on only 8Megs RAM....

Any ideas as to why the iratic behaviour

Thanks Jeff  Ronne ----

        swap space not correctly configured. After reconfiguring
        everything worked like a charm

1. ET4000 starts X sometimes, sometimes just black screen


I have recently downloaded the XF86_W32_gendac server and am trying that as I
had no luck with the standard W32 driver.  I am running Slackware 3.1.2.  The
server occasionally starts up visible but usually a black screen comes up. Even
if I leave the config file alone, running "startx" over and over will
eventually work, but the next time it probably won't. When I run SuperProbe, it
tells me I have a Music MU9C4910 Ramdac, which doesn't appear on the list in
xf86config.  Finally on the rare occasion that the X server will start up some
of the palette colors are usually wrong ie if I start a color X-term, the text
and background are both white, etc.  Anyone with a solution pls post or email
