Fixed the unresolved symbol and started x. Got a Xserver crash 8...
Backtraced showed that it originated from within the SIS driver. Died in a font file routine (looks like it was done reading a font file). No luck googling the error messages (very common way for xorg 7.2 to die).
Given that the ubuntu people did not report anything similar, (and with the old sis driver, X started fine, so the fonts files are obviously OK) I am guessing a version incompatibility with one of the component libraries used by the driver vs X itself.
Comments on this logic? I am thinking of trying to build X from scratch and inject the sis driver in the source tree. Any reason that there is not a xorg 7.3 addon?
