Description of problem:
ATI Rage 128 mobility video card crashes X server. The video card is on a Compaq
Presario 1800 laptop. This began on first boot after install. I am having to use
the 'vesa' drivers to use X at all.

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Use 'redhat-confic-xfree86 --reconfigure' to add 'r128' back as the default
driver for my card.
2.Use 'startx' from the command line.
3.X attempts to start, screen flickers, server crashes and gives output, 'no
screens were found'
Actual Results: X attempts to start, screen flickers, server crashes and gives
output, 'no screens were found'.
Expected Results: X server should have launched.

The logs look ok to me at least. Can you attach the /etc/X11/XF86Config file too?
mharris: This looks like yours.

Chris, are you still seeing the problem? If so, can you please attach the
/etc/X11/XF86Config file? Otherwise, we're kind of stuck on this issue.

mharris: can you look at this now that the config file has been attached?
I'm changing the component to XFree86 since it looks like the config file is
valid. Maybe the driver is at fault.
I am new in Linux running RedHat 8.0 and last thing I did is running up2date
from command line and when I wanted to startx it won't start. Screen flickers
and will give this error:
XIO: fatal IO error 104 (connextion reset by peer) on X server "0:0" after 0
requests (0 known processed) with 0 events remaining.
