Description Torin Ford 2006-11-03 22:32:52 EST
Description of problem:
Running startx results in a screen with some X type stuff displayed, but no
keyboard or mouse messages are processed, cannot get back to virtual consoles, etc.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.  Install a voodoo 3 2000 video card
2.  Configure X to use this card
3.  run "startx 2>&1 > xcrash
Actual results:
X will appear to start, then hang killing keyboard and mouse.  xcrash will
contain the output of running startx.  In that output you will see:

X: symbol lookup error: /usr/lib/xorg/modules/drivers/tdfx_drv.so: undefined
symbol: getsecs

Expected results:
X to start normally.

Additional info:
This is related to some change made between FC5 and FC6, the tdfx driver worked
just fine in FC5

A quick google for linux tdfx getsecs shows that there was an upstream fix back
in June.  Basically, getsecs (in tdfx_priv.c from
xorg-x11-drv-tdfx-1.2.1-3.1.src.rpm ) should be xf86getsecs

https://bugzilla.redhat.com/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=212741 seems to be a
duplicate as well.

The patch on freedesktop works for me.

Another solution I was using was to downgrade to a version from FC5 but this 
requires rebuilding the SRPM due to xorg version mismatch.

Fixed in xorg-x11-drv-tdfx 1.3.0
