Subject2.5.37 won't run X?
X won't start on 2.5.37, but works with 2.5.36
The screen goes black as usual, but then nothing else happens.
ssh'ing in from another machine shows XFree86 using 50% cpu,
i.e. one of the two cpu's in this machine.

killing the XFre86 process is impossible, even with kill -9
from root. sysrq SAK worked though, so I could recover
the machine. But I had to boot a different kernel to run X.

00:0f.0 VGA compatible controller: S3 Inc. ViRGE/DX or /GX (rev 01)

2.5.37 SMP kernel

XFree86 Version / X Window System
(protocol Version 11, revision 0, vendor release 6510)
Release Date: 21 December 2001

Distribution debian testing
