Description of problem:
When trying to start X on a Toshiba 660CDT, I get a "Fatal server error:
Caught signal 11. Server aborting" error in my XFree86.log. XFree4.0.3
worked perfectly in Redhat 7.1, and the installer gui displayed fine while
doing either a clean install of 7.2 or an upgrade.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Clean install of Redhat 7.2
2. after installation, change the symbolic link of X
3. startx and crash
Worked fine with Redhat 7.1. I even did a clean install of 7.1, following
the above steps, and X ran correctly. Then did an upgrade to 7.2, changed
the sym link, and no joy.
Also tried a fresh install of 7.2 with same results

You are not using the Red Hat supplied XFree86. Red Hat does not
support bugs in user built packages.
I rebuilt the XFree4.0 source RPM as an attempt to make X work. I get the same
result with the supplied Redhat RPMS, which I described in my bug report. It
fails every time with a fresh install, straight from the 7.2 cd, as well as
when I do a fresh install of 7.1, where X does work, and then do an upgrade
If you want me to do another fresh install and send you my XFree86.log file to
prove what I am saying I can do that also.
