I have a RedHat 6.1 with XFreee 4.0.1 and the kernel 2.2.17 My graphic
card is a Matrox G400.
I decided to upgraede to the kernel 2.4.2 and so I compiled directly
into the core of the kernel the DRI, the agpgart and the driver for
the Matrox. Result? X won't start: a black screen with this kind of
gdm_slave_windows_kill_ioerror_handler: Fatal X error - Restarting :0
That was the log I found that I discovered later. The first thing I
see written on the screen is the warning about gdm that seems to be
killed misteriously but that was already running!
Ideas? Thanks! Lorenzo
