NetBSD mmX 1.6_BETA5 NetBSD 1.6_BETA5 (GENERIC) #0: Fri Aug 2 19:35:27 UTC 2002 firstname.lastname@example.org:/autobuild/i386/OBJ/autobuild/src/sys/arch/i386/compile/GENERIC i386
The machine runs with an i810 video. When restarting the X server about 10 times, you finnally get a message from the kernel:
agp_release_helper: mem 22 is bound
agp_release_helper: mem 23 is bound
And the X server won't start again. Attempting to start it again result in the following error:
(EE) I810(0): Less than 6MB of AGP memoryis available. Cannot proceed.
(EE) Screen(s) found, but none have a usable configuration.
The only way to fix it seems to reboot the machine.
The XF86Config file is available at http://hcpnet.free.fr/XF86Config
Launch xdm, and hit control-alt-backspace a few times until it refuses restarting.
