I have also tried to reinstall Red Hat Linux and have also reconfigured the 
network and ethernet settings

-> XFree - but not a lot of information here...

I am a new user to Redhat, and am not sure where I can locate the X-server log
so if you could please tell me where to locate it it would be appreciated. Thanks

I have just installed a PCI ethernet card and I am getting faster speed and have
not had a crash yet. I am starting to wonder if it could possibly be a conflict
between Redhat and my integrated ethernet card. Could that possibly be what has
been causing me problems?

Comment 7 Mike A. Harris 2002-12-19 04:22:47 UTC
You haven't attached the needed information as requested.  While I realize
you are a newbie and may not know where the files are, you could have asked
on a mailing list or something.  I cycle through all bugs and the time it
takes to get back around again can be a long time, so it is best if people
provide all information the first time, or as quickly as possible.

Please attach:


Also provide the output of "lsmod" from while X is running.

This is the /etc/X11/XF86Config.

Comment 11 Need Real Name 2002-12-22 01:03:53 UTC
After I installed an Linksys LNE100TX everything has seemed to run smoothly and
I have had no problems with it freezing. I believe that the integrated ethernet
card on my motherboard was not compatible. I am satisfied with the speed that I
am getting and do not need anymore feedback on this bug. But if you need more
information to help others who have the same problem and provide a patch for it
I am willing to help.

Comment 12 Mike A. Harris 2002-12-22 08:32:13 UTC
Ok, this sounds like it was a hardware issue then, and unrelated to XFree86.
Glad to see you've got things going ok now though.  I'll close this as
notabug for now.  Thanks.
