Description Chaskiel Grundman 2001-10-23 03:50:05 UTC
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):

How reproducible:

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
 is unresolved!

        This should not happen!
        An unresolved function was called!

Fatal server error

Additional info:

Load "mfb"
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.
Silly me.
