I have a similar problem with a Matrox Millenium II card (mga driver). I'm in the middle of switching from RH7.1 to Gentoo. On RH, everything works fine but on Gentoo when I exit X all my monitor lights flash and it doesn't return to text mode. Luckily I can either ctrl-alt-del or ssh in to reboot. I've posted on different forums (XFree, Gentoo) and haven't found any help or answers. Which alpha packages are you using? I was trying unstable (~alpha). Do you also get "unsupported relocation type" entries in your X logs? What X driver is the Mystique using? If you find a fix please share it with me. too... Allen -- gentoo-alpha@g.o mailing list
