xorg dies on startup with glint_drv.so: undefined symbol: RamDacCreateInfoRec
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:12:06 EST
Description of problem:
xorg server fails on startup (when running "startx") due to:
X: symbol lookup error: /usr/lib/xorg/modules/drivers//glint_drv.so: undefined
I'm running with a FireGL 1000 video card, which seems to limit me to only the
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Happens every time I attempt to start X.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. run "startx"
X switches the display to the X buffer (Ctrl-Alt-F7), but it remains blank.
The X server stops on the primary console with the above error message.
X server should start
I've attached the Xorg log file.

I'm experiencing the same problem with a Permedia 2 card. Same symbol lookup
Research suggests it might be caused by this xorg bug, which is resolved
I'm in the process of recompiling the xorg-x11-server SRPM with the patch from
there, and I'll report back when I find out whether it works.
OK, I grabbed xorg-x11-server-184.108.40.206-5.fc7.src.rpm, added the patch from the
freedesktop.org bug entry, rebuilt the RPM and installed it. Now the X server
xorg-x11-server-220.127.116.11-8.fc7 has been pushed to the Fedora 7 testing repository. If problems still persist, please make note of it in this bug report.
I just tried out the xorg-x11-server-Xorg update from the development repository
(version i386 18.104.22.168-8.fc8) since I didn't see the update yet in the testing
repository (it's at -7.fc7 when I checked, which doesn't have the fix). I'm
seeing the X server start now.
I just installed xorg-x11-server-Xorg-22.214.171.124-8.fc7 from testing, and it works
xorg-x11-server-126.96.36.199-8.fc7 has been pushed to the Fedora 7 stable repository. If problems still persist, please make note of it in this bug report.
