Angry XF86Config-4 Problems


Help!!!

I'm tring to configure a system that uses XFree86 4.1 and it keeps on crashing.

Here is my XFConfig file:

# File generated by xf86config.

Yea I've been there before, it helped me with XFree86 v3.x. But it is no good for XFree86 v4.1. I did notice there doesn't seem to be an option for SVGA, is this true.
