Hello. I have some PC164 (ev56) alphas laying around doing nada. I've been trying different distributions of Linux and FreeBSD to get one of them working as functional workstation. This weekend I grabbed the stage3 ev5 tarball from ibiblio's ftp archives and got as far as :

frobnitz.pugetsoundsolare login:

So, that was cool. Took a little bit of trial and error, but it worked out great. Problem is that I can't seem to get X 4.2.1 or 4.2.0 to run properly. 4.2.1 causes a machine check which halts the machine. While it's trying to load modules, 4.2.0 returns this:

Elf_RelocateEntry() Unsupported relocation type 18
Elf_RelocateEntry() Unsupported relocation type 17

So what does this mean? How do I overcome this?

Let's not cross post, OK? I think the posting in alternate architectures is more fitting a location myself.
