You're not using a Red Hat Linux kernel.  Please reproduce this problem
with an official Red Hat supplied binary kernel with no binary only
kernel modules or other kernel modules not provided by Red Hat.

Also, XFree86.9.log is not the proper log file.  Attach XFree86.0.log.

The attached kernel log file, shows a tdfx card.

That was actually a hardware problem. Sorry.
