Subject2.4.19-pre4-ac4 kills my gdm
This is kind of odd - I have an Athlon 850 with a sis 730 chipset. X
detects the "sis 630" as my video chipset.

under 2.4.19-pre4-ac3 all is good - reboot to 2.4.19-pre4-ac4 and gdm
won't start.

X does start successfully.. but not gdm. I can go to runlevel 3 and
run startx without a problem (i.e. get a window manager, etc..)

If I boot back to 2.4.19-pre4-ac3 all is well again.

/var/log/gdm/:0.log complains of a lock

Fatal server error:
Server is already active for display 0
If this server is no longer running, remove /tmp/.X0-lock
and start again.

When reporting a problem related to a server crash, please send
the full server output, not just the last messages.
Please report problems to

However clearing the lock (and making sure its gone when the sever
starts) is of no help.
