SLED10 : Xserver fails to start after running well

Novell SUSE Linux Enterprise Desktop 10
ATI Graphics Card and driver
Typically, disabling the 3-D effects and Xgl hides the symptoms and allows the GUI to start.
- Open a shell.
- SU to root.
- Change to the /etc/rc.d/rc5.d/ directory.
- Locate the script names of the xdm process and the
atieventsd. By default, the two files are :
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 13 2006-08-01 13:43 S21atieventsd -> ../atieventsd
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 6 2006-08-01 10:38 S10xdm -> ../xdmThe link starts with 'S' and then a two digit number. This means that it is the start script, and the two digit number is the load preference. The lower the number, the earlier the start.
- Alter the load order by moving the atieventsd process to start
before the xdm process. This is done by :
mv S21atieventsd S09atieventsd
- Restart the workstation.
