    SubjectXF86-4 dies with DRM (Re: Linux-2.4.0-test6)
    I have a 3DFX Voodoo3.

    When I enable DRM support in XFree86 4.0.1 with 2.4.0-test6, startx, then
    hop out to a text console, if I wait a little bit X will die with a:

    Fatal server error:
    Caught signal 11. Server aborting

    Putting the X server in 24 bit mode (and thus preventing DRM from
    functioning in the 3DFX driver) is enough to keep X alive.

    I remember having this problem before. I thought it was fixed, but
    perhaps I just stopped using the DRM stuff because of other problems of
    having drm and agp both compiled into the kernel.

    Two penguins were walking on an iceburg. The first one said to the
    second, "you look like you are wearing a tuxedo." The second one said,
    "I might be..."
