Don't use XFree86 3.3.6, use 4.1.0 instead.

Xconfigurator --preferxf4

Also there are updated packages available for testing with new Savage
drivers at:  ftp://people.redhat.com/mharris/testing/7.2

Does this solve the problem?

Comment 2 Mike A. Harris 2002-01-25 06:31:51 UTC
XFree86 4.1.0-15 released as erratum for RHL 7.2 solves all known
Savage related problems.  If you still experience a problem after
upgrading to the new release, please reopen this bug report, and
attach your XF86Config-4 and X server log files using the file
attachment link below.
