X Server config and test works fine during install, but after regular boot
it won't come up. Screen flashs and init eventually turns off re-spawn.
Log file says 'pcidata' is missing.
Steps to Reproduce:
1.install linux beta
2.boot to linux
Actual Results: see problem desc. X server will not start.
Expected Results: Graphical login should be displayed.
Intel 815EAA motherboard, 800EB CPU, 512MB PC133 ram. Nothing else special.
Please upgrade to the latest version of XFree86 from:
Version 4.0.3-2 is current. You will also need to update Mesa and possibly
update to the latest rawhide kernel. If the problem persists, please
provide your XFree86 server logs and XF86Config-4 cofnig files using the
attachment link below. Also give me a copy of the output of
both "lspci -v" and also "lspci -vn".
Also, if you are reporting against XFree86 4.x, please change it from
XFree86-Servers to just XFree86 as this bug is currently filed against the
XFree86-Servers-3.3.6 package, and I'm assuming you're using 4.x.
Oops, I meant 4.0.3-1 ;o)
I'm working on 4.0.3-2 right now though..

I have a similar problem, I can start the Xserver but if I use 16 or 24 bit
resolution the screen glitches every 2 seconds, please take a look at bug 32338.
I'm using 4.0.3-1 and kernel 2.4.2-0.1.25
To the original poster - please supply the information that I requested so
that I can look into these problems for you.
It appears the i810 X server did not support i815. This has been fixed in
XFree86-Servers-3.3.6-38, and an errata release will be issued shortly.
You can obtain new packages in the mean time from:
