A kernel which conflicts with X-Window? Very unusual.
But if you are totally sure, maybe you
missing in the kernel something related to internal IPC, sockets,
etc: X-Window is different from MS-Windows, and requires an
environment supporting client/server interprocess communication.

Do not trust in this kernel.txt, because it is unchanged since
long time, sorry.

Why do not try to compile a your kernel from scratch? You have to
answer "M" (module support) whenever you can, but please: add ramdisk,
loop, initial_ramdisk and floppy support directly in the kernel.


I'd like to conclude with a positive statement, but I can't 
remember any. Would two negative ones do?       -- Woody Allen
