Unhappy X freezes on startup on compaq armada


I'm running rh9 on a compaq armada m700 and am generally happy with my installation except for one really annoying thing. When X starts, everything freezes for a while (at least 20 seconds, sometimes even more than a minute!) . During the freezing, some of the leds on my laptop (keyboard etc.) blink several times. After that, either everythings works fine (in most cases) or I have to restart X because my mouse will not function.
I think this is a known problem. See the bugreport at: https://bugzilla.redhat.com/bugzill...g.cgi?id=109516
I was wondering whether anyone knew a quick way around this problem. I'm a newbie and i don't thikn i'm up yet for rebuilding a kernel. I tried upgrading XFree86, but i get all sorts of conflicts and gave up in the end. So what is a newbie to do?
thanks
rick

Please do not post the same thread in more than one forum. Picking the most relevant forum and posting it once there makes it easier for other members to help you and keeps the discussion all in one place.
