Hey there all,

You have been warned... This is a LONG message ;)

I have just installed xfree86311 ( the version distributed with 
2.0.5) on a machine and I am getting a strange response I've never 
seen on any other server. It is dying without a fatal: error message 
or anything like that and I'm at a loss as to why...  The server 
starts up,  Opens the display (with a nice 'lil ol cross for my mouse 
cursor) stays open for 3 or for seconds and then closes ( and all I 
see on the command line is : waiting for X server to shut down..)
Oh : the card is a vesa cirrus with the CL-GD5430 Chipset,  The 
monitor is an ultra cs1404

server output and Xf86 below..

Thanks a bunch

Tony

this is what the server outputs on startup :
