xf86


Hi everybody. I am attempting to set up xfree86 on my lfs and am having some problems. When I try to test the XF86Config.new file, everything comes up o.k., but then the screen never changes and i have to do ctrl+alt+del to get out. Here's the lines from the log file which have warnings:

(WW) Open APM failed (/dev/apm_bios) (No such file or directory)

(WW) System lacks support for changing MTRRs

(WW) I810(0): xf86AllocateGARTMemory: allocation of 1024 pages failed
(Cannot allocate memory)

Does anybody have any suggestions for me?

Did you add support for MTTRs in your kernel?

yes, I have bot apm_bios and mtrr in my kernel. The only thing is, when I boot in rh, copy $LFS/boot/lfskernel to /boot, and run lilo -v, i get a message that says: file /boot/boot.0300: file exists : no backup copy name (I don't remember the actual syntax). Does this mean that the new kernel isn't being booted?
