Description osman 1999-11-08 22:26:01 EST
When I start X with:
xinit -- /usr/X11R6/bin/XF86_FBDev :1
Or as the default XServer it exits with a segmentation fault
I have a Matrox Millenium as my fb0 which is working in
1280x1024x16bpp mode which it uses to give me a text console
worth 160x64

After careful examiniation of the messages displayed while
starting it up I noticed that it has been compiled for
kernel 2.2.5-22smp.i686

Now aint that a bit strange when you install a normal
*.i386.rpm ???

I am actualy running it on a Pentium200 Single CPU machine.
