Description of problem:
I'm using up2date package. Yesterday it suggests me to download a new
kernel from RH. Version 2.4.18-19.8.0. Downloading was fine and when
I reboot my system it hangs up and my X server didn't come up. I'm sure
that a new kernel cause it, since previous version 2.4.18-18.8.0 which
I'm runnig now works fine. I have 3Dfx Interactive, Inc. Voodoo Banshee (rev 03)
video card. Please check status with video driver for this card.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Reboot system
Actual Results: After reboot first time X server works for a while until mouse was
frozen and system was rebooting using power button.
After reboot second time my server didn't come up at all
The video drivers are part of XFree86, not the kernel. However, the kernel
contains the DRM modules which allow things like 3D acceleration to work.
Since XFree86 hasn't changed as far as 3Dfx hardware is concerned in about 2
or more years now, this is unlikely to be a video driver issue.
In order to begin to troubleshoot the issue however, you'd have to provide
quite a bit more information than is provided above.
Please attach your /var/log/messages file from after a hang, as well as
your X server log and config file.
