Hi Sunny!

Just a thought. Do you still have any of those Intel drivers/modules
hanging around?  I mean the ones for XFree86-3.3.x like XFCom_810
If you do, you got to remove ALL traces of them before trying to use
XFree-4.x. The reason is that the I810_GTT and the XFCom_810 rpms
given by intel are made for each other and incompatible with every
thing else like the agpgart module for kernel 2.4.0 or XFree-4.x

I am using Xfree 4.0 with kernel 2.4.2. But I had to upgrade my system
to RH7.0. I know, it's got a broken gcc, but it also got glibc2.2. And
how long does it take to upgrade gcc anyway?
