Fatal Server error: No valid modes found

I'm having trouble with the X-Server on my YellowDog Champion Server 1.1
running on a WallStreet CPU (via external scsi)

I shut down the Linux server (cleanly) to boot into MacOS. When I
attempted to boot back into Linux ( automatically starts X-Server)
I get the following message repeated endlessly. I was able to
pause the output (with ctl-s) to copy down the screen.

I have MkLinux installed on the same system and can still boot into

Any idea how to fix the X-Server on the YellowDog Champion 1.1 server ?
