It's even more obscure than you think. I have consistently had this
problem on this machine. I had the same issue on an old Fedora 8

ATI driver completely hosed X on this system. X.org is too new and the
Radeon 9800 card is too old. I had to revert to using the "radeon"
driver. As a result, my old 3D games (Descent3, Heavy Gear II) no longer
work. That alone may motivate me to completely replace this old machine,
since it is unlikely I can find an AGP card that is still supported by a
3D-capable driver anywhere any more. It is my main desktop and has
