X windows won't work

Hi everyone,

I don't know if this is the right list, if not then tell me where to send
this information.

I am having a problem with Woody for hppa.  It won't let me run X windows.
When the computer gets to the point of starting the xserver on bootup, the
screen blinks a few times then gives me the text only mode.  Typing "startx"
does the same thing then says:

(screen full of video drivers and other things)

Fatal server error:
AddScreen/ScreenInit failed for driver 0

I have the log file from "/var/log/XFree86.0.log", I can post it if anyone
wants/needs to see it.

I appreciate any help in getting this resolved or any pointers t where I can
get some help.

Thank you and have a nice day!!

James E. Merritt
