Can be fixed by applying XFree86 patches sent previously
Comment 1 Mike A. Harris 2002-01-23 17:51:22 EST
The latest XFree86 build internally is 4.1.0-15, which does contain
the patches that were sent to me.

I do not think people are pulling their packages from my latest builds.

XFree86-4.1.0-8 is ancient.
Comment 2 Jeff Wiedemeier 2002-01-25 10:20:55 EST
There is one additional patch (beyond those already submitted) to allow XFree86
to work properly with a video card (tested with AGP Radeon) in hose 1,2,or 3
with the configuration file generated by Xconfigurator. This patch forces VGA_EN
for invisible pci host bridges (as is already done for probed pci host bridges)
to allow proper defaulting of the busid so that in a single video card
configuration, a single device section without a BusID can be properly assigned.

Patch will be attached.

Fixed in upcoming release.
Comment 5 Jeff Wiedemeier 2002-02-04 16:47:01 EST
The previously submitted version of the 101_anyhose patch inadvertently broke
sparse memory systems. A corrected patch will be attached -- please apply the
corrected patch instead of the original one.
