Hi everyone. I'm having a hard time installing linuxppc2000 on my
PowerMac 9600/PowerLogixG3 (IMS TwinTurbo 128 4 MB). I installed it
with a burned install img. Went just fine till then...
My first problem is with the video resolution. I can't set the
resolution to something higher than 640x480. If a set the arguments in
BootX as: "video=vmode:20", the startup goes fine, at the right
resoltion (which is 1280x1024 in that case) but when it tries to load
the X11 server, my screen goes black. How do I get higher resolutions?
Another problem is with the video acceleration. I would be supposed to
get it by setting the options in my /etc/X11/gdm/gdm.conf file. When I
set the option "-tt128", I reboot a my colors goes crazy... Any idea?
Not to mention that I have a second monitor (also on an IMS TwinTurbo
128 4 MB) than I can't get running... Some driver supports that on
Finally, I downloaded and burned the other installation img, (the big
one, at 600MB), but I am not able to load it in the installer. Is there
something I am missing here?
I'm working with Solaris at school/work and I'm kinda sick of MacOS
crashing at home. Since MacOS X has no X11 support yet, I thought
LinuxPPC would be a great thing for me... Please help! ;-)
