well i applied the patch for XFree86 4.0.2 and compiled it under YDL
1.2.1's default kernel (since i'm still having issues building a new
kernel). at the time i received this error i was using Ian Roxborough's
XF86Config posted at

Symbol fbPictureInit from module /usr/X11R6/lib/modules/drivers/r128_drv.o
is unresolved!
Symbol xf86FreeInt10 from module /usr/X11R6/lib/modules/drivers/r128_drv.o
is unresolved!
Symbol xf86InitInt10 from module /usr/X11R6/lib/modules/drivers/r128_drv.o
is unresolved!

Fatal server error:
Caught signal 11. Server aborting

i was wondering if anyone else has had experience w/ the problem...
