Description Need Real Name 2000-09-14 09:06:52 EDT
Using a clean installation of Pinstripe on the following hardware:

Abit BP6
2x Celerons@600MHz
160Mb RAM
Creative Banshee
Hollywood+ MPEG2 decoder
SB Live

The system boots fine, allows me to log on then run 'startx'.
X Starts up, Gnome starts, and then the machine hangs.  This *seems* to be
happening when the gnome startup get to 'rm'?  There's nothing in the X
log, and the config file seems to be using the tdfx module, which I believe
to be correct.

It may not be a gnome issue.  gdm starts up fine and running kde from that also

I've narrowed it down to one of 2 things:
USB stuff
Network stuff (there's currently nothing plugged into the network card)

I've got it to run with modules for both rmmod'ed and khupd killed

Booting 2.4.0-pre5 enables X to run fine.

Reassigning to kernel for the moment

Does the USB and the graphics card share an IRQ line ?
Comment 3 Mike A. Harris 2001-08-09 15:02:03 EDT
This is a Voodoo Banshee XFree86 problem caused by X changing the
video timing, however different Banshee cards use different timing
and it is not easily possible to differentiate the different hardware.
This is fixed in XFree86-4.1.0-0.9.11 in rawhide now by removing
the code which handles video timing, and just leaving it to the
BIOS default.
