Description of problem:
I have an Intel machine running RH 7.3, with kernel 2.4.18 running
I used the Update agent to update a large number of packages,
including the most recent XFree86 related ones. I did not, however,
update the kernel at that time (thus, I did not update the ipchains
packages as well).
The computer was working fine. Then I used the Update agent to get
the newest kernel 2.4.20. After rebooting the machine, X failed to
start up. The error output I saw said that it could find mod char 10
134 and mod char 195.
I've attached the relevant teext of the /var/log/messages and XFree86
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. install xfreee update
2. updat kernel

This is not a bug. It is a fact of life that people who use
binary only unsupported video drivers have to live with. Please
contact Nvidia, or public mailing lists for technical support,
as this is not a bug.
*** This bug has been marked as a duplicate of 73733 ***
As an additional informational note, every single kernel update
ever released will result in this same problem re-occuring, and
there is absolutely nothing we can do about it. It's entirely
a 3rd party support issue, and out of our hands.
