We (Red Hat) should try to fix this for the next release.
Comment 2 Mike A. Harris 2001-08-08 12:26:57 EDT
Attach X config and X log as separate file attachments using the
link below.  Then I can proceed to look at this.

Comment 8 Bernd Bartmann 2001-08-22 05:08:56 EDT
The problem still exists on ROSWELL Beta 2.
Comment 9 Mike A. Harris 2002-02-11 09:31:22 EST
This problem is believed to be fixed now with 4.1.0-15 at least, possibly
with the 4.1.0-3 released with Enigma also.  I believe drm would not
load because of an agpgart issue which was fixed.

Can you confirm wether this bug is still relevant, so I can close it
or troubleshoot it further?

Comment 10 Bernd Bartmann 2002-02-11 11:05:28 EST
Seems to be ok now. Now running RedHat 7.2 with all current updates as of today.
