Problem with X windows

Hey all,

We recently aquired a Sun Enterprise 250 which we installed debian woody on. Everything is running really well except X windows.

When any display manager is started it works alright until a desktop manager is started. It will go through the process of loading the system and will lock the system up when it attempts to start the window manager portion.

I have checked the logs, the X font server cannot be found, it then reverts to the file paths in the XF86Config-4 file.

I'm not really understanding what the problem is. We did have Mandrake 7.1 for Sparc installed previously and X windows ran fine.

The video hardware is a Tech-Source Raptor GFX. The configuration is set to run the glint x server drivers.

Any suggestions?
