Latest X doesn't work on my Thinkpad A30p
I upgraded to the new packages that came out in early March.
Since then I can't run X. If I use a depth greater than 8
my system locks up: blank screen, no response to keyboard
or mouse. If I use depth 8 most of the colors on the screen
are black, making it effectively unusable. I can exit with
ctl-alt-backspace though. I rolled back to the previous
versions of the X packages and have no problem. I use 'radeon'
video with the ATI drivers.
I can't start X with the VGA, VESA, or FBDEV drivers: it reports
'undefined symbol: resVgaShared'
I have a Thinkpad A30p with ATI Radeon Mobility M6 LY (AGP) (ChipID =
0x4c59). I build my own kernel. I'm on 2.6.33. I have 512 MB
RAM. All other software comes from Slackware packages and are up-to-date.
