I have a Riva TNT, and things stopped working when I compiled things anew
recently. Turned out my problems were with XF86Config.
Several hings with it, actually.

1) It had moved from /etc to /etc/X11
2) I had, by default, a 32 bpp configuration. Didn't work anymore, had to
   use 24 bpp instead.
3) The XF86Config file format have changed.

I think it can handle the old format and location, but it sure couldn't
handle by 32 bpp config I used to have.
