I think it's a problem with my X server. That's exactly what I have and
it doesn't work. I tried a Knoppix LiveCD and it works there. I tried
running my X server with Knoppix's XF86Config and it didn't work. This
is on a Ubuntu system, not an LFS build. I'll upgrade and hopefully
it'll work then. Thanks.
