Hi. I'm attempting an auto-install of R5A30 using a reported Tier-1 motherboard w/ integrated audio/video. All goes well through the re-boot, then I get a message that "I cannot start the X Server". The /var/log/XFree86.0.log file contents are shown below. Key problem seems to be: Failed to load module "pcidata" (unknown module type, 6).

I have to admit that I know nothing about configuring X. I was hoping to avoid this can of worms by choosing a Tier-1 setup. I guess it's time to learn! Any suggestions on where to start my troubleshooting??

Thanks!
David

It's fixed. I reinstalled with R5A30.1 and the problem went away.
