Description of problem:
We have a tyan k8w dual opteron board configured as follows:
2P 240 Opteron
RHEL3 AMD64 U1 (kernel 2.4.21-9smp)
Nvidia NVS 280 AGP video
When logging into the system at init level 5, KDE/Gnome is unable to
load. Sorry, I forgot to include that I was already using NVIDIA's
drivers, the same version that is patched for 64bit (1.0-5332).
The generic drivers allow the system to boot KDE/Gnome, but do not
allow us to use dual-dvi output to drive two flatscreens at 1600x1200.
So using the generic XFree drivers are not a solution for RHEL3
I've attached my (working) XF86Config file.
I say working because when only 4GB of memory is used (in a 2+2
configuration), kde/gnome loads properly, but when 8GB of memory (4+4)
is used, gnome/kde fails to load.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1.Just Start the Machine and boot into level 5
Actual Results: The system won't boot into Graphical Display when
using more than 4GB of RAM.
Expected Results: Boot into runlevel 5.
