Attempting to run build 303 (and possibly others) on an ATest board will result in a loop of failed X server invocations. You can fix this by configuring a custom xorg.conf file. Put a file similar to the following one in /etc/X11/xorg.conf.

Section "ServerLayout"
        Identifier     "Default Layout"
        Screen      0  "Screen0" 0 0
        InputDevice    "Keyboard0" "CoreKeyboard"
EndSection

Section "ServerFlags"
       Option      "AllowMouseOpenFail" "yes"
EndSection

Section "InputDevice"
        Identifier  "Keyboard0"
        Driver      "kbd"
        Option      "XkbModel" "pc105"
        Option      "XkbLayout" "us"
EndSection

Section "Device"
        Identifier  "Videocard0"
        Driver      "fbdev"
EndSection

Section "Modes"
	Identifier "Modes[0]"
	Modeline "1280x1024" 108.00 1280 1328 1440 1688 1024 1025 1028 1066
EndSection

Section "Monitor"
	DisplaySize 338 270
	Identifier "Monitor[0]"
	VendorName "NEC"
	ModelName "NEC LCD1770GX"
	HorizSync 30-81
	VertRefresh 43-75
	UseModes "Modes[0]"
	Option "DPMS"
EndSection

Section "Screen"
        Identifier "Screen0"
        Device     "Videocard0"
	Monitor	   "Monitor[0]"
        DefaultDepth     16
        SubSection "Display"
                Viewport   0 0
                Depth     16
		Modes "1280x1024"
        EndSubSection
EndSection

Then in order to prohibit the configuration script from overwriting the file run the following command:
