SubjectLinux kernel modules conflict with XFree86?
Date
Hello all,

Well, the story is a little long. :) There seems to be some conflicts
with linux kernel(maybe modules...) and XFree86.

The first problem was when I was trying to run Xfree86 on
Diamond Stealth 64video 2001/Samsung 17glsi monitor. Video 2001
wouldn't run with XFree86 3.1.2, so I upgraded X into 3.2 version.
Video 2001 worked fine with XFree86 3.2. And I recompiled the
Linux kernel for system optimization, and just rebooted the machine
from a character terminal I use most of time.

And my friend found that XFree86 wouln't run a few days later.
He tried various methods to make XFree86 run, but in vain. He
solved this problem by completely(!) reinstalling the entire system.

And I did again the kernel compilation from my character terminal.
and again my friend noticed that X wouldn't run. This time he
replaced the Video2001 vga board with an old ATi Mach64 eXpression
board and reinstalled the system again. It worked fine and
I did the kernel compilation and the situation went bad again ... -___-

We solved this problem simply by compiling the kernel without utilizing
'module' feature. Now the server runs X windows very fine. I forgot
this strange problem for a while. But the problem appeared again
(this time on my home machine!) after the kernel recomplation.
Well, there seems to be some problems with my 'make config' feature-
selection style. :) The followings are /lib/modules/2.0.27/ listing of
my Linux box. I'm a user of P120 cpu (with 32Mb of ram) and Ati
Xpression 2Mb Dram board. I'm currently using XFree3.1.2. I appreciate
much if somebody suggests what's wrong with my compilation style and
I'm afraid this has something to do with kernel bugs.
