This works fine on redhat 7.2
DOes it work if you use option "noaccel"?
This is a bug, and noaccel won't work.
I have a fix under testing.
You can get a new module from http://www.xfree86.org/~alanh.
Please report back here.
Please provide feedback on Alan's test module, or this almost certainly
will ship non-working in our final release.

Bugzilla will not let me comment on this:
Software error:Couldn't get form data at CGI.pl line 1444.
For help, please send mail to the webmaster (email@example.com), giving this
error message and the time and date of the error.
New module works fine. After copying over the old module, system needs a
power cycle to clear out video card. Restarting X or soft reset won't work.
Fixed in 4.2.0-6.60 in rawhide. Thanks for the patch Alan.
