1 >Maybe try building it into your kernel? I suspect that might make the
2 problem more obvious.
4 The first attempt failed to build. So, I changed a few other things
5 from built-in to modules. The second one built successfully.
6 Indeed, X started and the window manager looked OK. I started xterm and
7 dragged it around. Just after the kernel, I had emerged mesa-progs.
8 So, I tried glxgears and CRASH. Blank screen. No response. So, I
9 logged in on a serial connection and tried my best to shut down
10 gracefully. I tried X a few more times and tried other programs, but
11 the results have been the same or worse.
12 I am encouraged that X might work. There are still problems. I'll keep
13 trying.
