Description Dan Browning 1999-12-14 21:52:05 UTC
Redhat 6.0 was able to install the Suse XFCom_Rage128, without a problem and worked great for my ATI Expert 128 card (16mb). But under 6.1, when I follow the install instructions (as listed below), XF86Setup cannot get the server started. After displaying the "starting server" screen, some errors go to STDERR and STDOUT saying: Cannot Connect::Errno 11 (Server Unavailable) It does this over and over until you SIGINT the XF86Setup. I have tried the XFCom_Rage128 server with Mandrake 6.1, and it works fine (since mdk6.1 is based off rh6.0). Maybe something has changed in 6.1 that it can't handle the XFCom server. Thank you for paying attention to this matter. Here is a copy of the installations (from the listed SUSE URL): Installation On a SuSE Linux system it is straight forward to install these servers. All you need to do is rpm -e xsvga rpm -U [xfcom-packet].rpm ln -s /usr/X11R6/bin/[xfcom-server] /usr/X11R6/bin/XF86_SVGA which means in case of the XFCom_Rage128 server rpm -e xsvga rpm -U xrage.rpm ln -s /usr/X11R6/bin/XFCom_Rage128 /usr/X11R6/bin/XF86_SVGA Now start SaX and select GENERIC SERVER SELECTION model SVGA. This is all that is needed to get the server installed and configured. If you cannot use SaX to configure this server, we recommend that you use the current XF86Setup program as provided by SuSE. This has been extended to handle XFCom servers as well. If you are using an olde, glibc-2.0 based Linux system other than SuSE, you may run into a slight incompatibility that causes the program to fail with the error message undefined symbol: __register_frame_info This problem can be solved by installing the regframe package. Now edit (as root) the file /etc/ld.so.preload (or create it in case it does not exist). The first line contains a (space separated) list of libraries to pre-load before program execution. Add /lib/libregframe.so to that list (or write /lib/libregframe.so in the first line in case you are creating this file).

Rage 128 support is included in XFree86 3.3.6, which will be available with the next release of Red Hat Linux.
