User-Agent: Mozilla/4.77 [en] (X11; U; Linux 2.4.3 i686)

Description of problem:
trying to 'startx' on a Dell latitude C800 w/ C/Dock II kills the OS

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:

Actual Results:  The screen goes blank and the kernel hangs...nothing

Expected Results:  X windows should appear and greet me with a fun GUI.

Additional info:

When the laptop is not in the docking station it sarts x fine, once the
laptop is put in the docking station the problem occurs...'startx' freezes
the machine entirely. No log files are created at all.

Comment 1 Mike A. Harris 2001-08-15 22:13:39 EDT
Your resolution and bit depth combined consume way to much video
memory for DRI to operate correctly.  Either disable DRI, or
lower your resolution and/or bit depth down to something that
this hardware and X support.
