Comment 3 Mike A. Harris 2001-06-12 00:59:13 EDT
The missing symbol errors in the i810 driver are fixed in release
XFree86-4.0.3-21 (not yet built, but will be soon).
You cannot run multiple X servers with DRI enabled on each I do not
believe.  If you disable DRI by commenting out the lines in the 
config file that load DRI, does the problem go away?
Comment 4 Mike A. Harris 2001-06-18 13:15:03 EDT
The i810 driver does not support running 2 servers on separate VC's
