Hey, that's my post he was replying to! =)
Anyways, my computer is really locked up - the ssh session I had into it
where I edited XF86Config froze and I have to rebot using a different
kernel (I know, I know, there's probably a better way to do it, but it
When I tried it I just restarted X, both the dirty way
(ctrl-alt-backspace) and the nice way (log off), and IIRC both locked the
computer. Looking at the X.old log I suspect that the SiS X driver detects
the IVTV framebuffer and tries to claim it for its own (BAD), so a
possible solution is to make sure that the SiS driver gets its own
framebuffer (kernel module building is fun!). Either that or somehow make
it *not* use a framebuffer, but I'm not sure if the driver supports that.
