Linear aperture not available (again)

My original message:
xdm fails to start up, giving the error "Linear aperture not available"
What is the significance of this message?

Well, when I got the message about bad blocks, I did a low-level reformatting, mapping out bad blocks. Then I reinstalled Debian, doing a bad block scan on each of the 3 partitions when I instantiated them, just in case.

No joy! Same exact error as before! Here is the whole error log, edited slightly for length:

warning: process set to nice value 0 instead of -10 as requested
