Hi Jim,

Actually the first thing I did was to look for the /tmp/XF86Config.1 and line 60 has nothing to do with the Xserver nor is there any mention of a "Modeline" parameter.
But I will try changing it to XF86_SVGA.

The odd part was that it worked the first time I started the server and booted the WSs, then when the WS were restarted this message came on. Also the stations that booted the first time are still working, only the ones that were restarted ????
Should that fail can the "Xserver " be reloaded, rebuilt ?

thks
norbert
