Description Jonathan Kamens 2001-06-20 21:33:08 EDT
I finally decided to bite the bullet and try once again to upgrade from the
XFree86 3.3.6 Mach64 server to the XFree86 4 server with the ATI driver. 
The last time I tried this, quite a while ago, the results were so
disastrous that I was scared away from using the XFree86 4 server for quite
a while.

This time, Xconfigurator seemed to generate an XF86Config-4 file for me
with no problem.  However, when I tried to use it, to start the server, I
got a whole bunch of errors of the form "Symbol .LC2 from module
/usr/X11R6/lib/modules/fonts/libbitmap.a is unresolved!"  I am at a loss to
explain these.  I will attach my XF86Config-4 file and the log from the
failed server run.

Needless to say, I have reversed to the XFree86 3.3.6 server for the time
being :-).

Any advice?

See bug 44954 as well.
Comment 4 Mike A. Harris 2001-07-02 21:09:37 EDT
Yes this is a known problem which is due to changes in gcc that do not work
well with the X module loader.  A new package will be available before long,
please read the dupe bugs for details.
