I have a strange problem with Xfree86 crashing a Gateway 2000. The
Gateway and Mach64 are both brand new. Manufacture date of the video
card is about 10 days before the release date of Xfree86 v3.2. When
I start any of the servers( mono,vga,mach64 ) the screen blanks and a
few seconds later the host goes thru the CMOS tests as if I had just
turned on power.
I figured I had an unsupported card so I installed a Jaton svga card
I use at home with freebsd 2.1.5 and xfree86 3.12. Behaviour is now
slightly different in that I get a few seconds of scrambled video
before the machine dies...all servers I try crash the host.
Both cards are PCI, Plug and Play is disabled. Any advice/ideas would
thanks , tim
