These are the kernels I have headers for.

This is a Redhat 7.2 box. I'm now three kernels behind because I can't make the video modules perform in any other configuration than I have now. Which is to say that the kernel-2.4.20-20.7 and the is my only combination if I want X available.

I'm running the 2.4.20-20.7 kernel with the older

When running I get a blank screen and all I can do is reboot. I can't kill it with "ctl-alt-bksp" and I can't get to a virtual terminal. I do a "ctl-alt-del" and it reboots nicely.

I neglected to save a log file from when I was playing with this last week-end as I hadn't intened to get time to post this. I reviewed the log though and found no errors. If I read nailchipper's log correctly his didn't show any errors either.

Any clues as to how to solve this would be appreciated. This problem is rapidly rendering my operating systme a liability.
