Description Bernard Stetz 2003-12-02 10:51:59 EST
Description of problem:
On system start-up, Xserver will not start and reports a Interrupt 11
error. However, if you start the server manually, i.e. after a login
and issue a startx, the Xserver operates normally.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Latest Xfree86

How reproducible:
Compile the latest powervr module for a Kyro chip set. Change
XF86Config to reflect the new loaded module. Do a system boot and the
Xserver will not start.

Steps to Reproduce:
1. See above. Also note that this happens with Run Level 5.
Actual results:
Will not start Xserver. View of log indicates Interrupt 11 error.

Expected results:
System should startup, for run level 5, in graphics mode.

Additional info:
This worked in RH 9.0 and previous versions (RH 8 and RH 7.x)

Comment 3 Mike A. Harris 2003-12-02 11:47:16 EST
This bug report is invalid for several reasons:

1) We do not support proprietary video drivers or other 3rd party

2) We do not support proprietary kernel modules or systems which are
   using proprietary kernel modules.

3) The bug is filed against Fedora Core test2, and now that Fedora
   Core 1 is officially released, test2 is obsolete, and we do not
   accept bug reports against it.

You will have to contact PowerVR or whoever supplied the drivers
to you for technical support assistance for this problem.

Closing as duplicate of our master "binonly" dupe bug.
