From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/4.78 [en] (X11; U; Linux 2.4.9 i686; Nav)
Description of problem:
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. install rh7.2 inside a vmware guest
2. run startx
Actual Results: X and gnome should start up
Expected Results: the server aborts. Relevant error text is:
Symbol mfbQueryBestSize from module
This should not happen!
An unresolved function was called!
Fatal server error
to the Modules section allows the X server to start.
(It crashes soon after that, but that may be because I'm using a beta
of vmware 3. The problem in _this_ report shouldn't be dependent on that)
It looks like this is actually an upstream issue in 4.1.0.
