Re: cannot startx on sarge-ia64
OK, you might want to get in touch with Benjamin Morin, who seems to
have had the same problem you're experiencing now. See e.g.
Perhaps Benjamin can let you know which kernel/XFree versions he has
managed to get working? I don't have any ATI hardware so I can't do much
I think that the problem come from the ATI card/driver
You're probably right - I think the kernel is stable enough that you're
unlikely to fix things by using another, and the XFree86 currently in
unstable seems to work for many people. Which drivers have you tried to use?
