XFree86 on iMac 233 with mach64

Post by Peter Gade Jense » Thu, 10 Jan 2002 11:26:07



i'm running kernel 2.4.17 and xf86 4.1 and i'm trying to get X to start.
  It starts fine but the screen goes blank(turns off) and i have to kill
it through a remote connection. Theres no errors in the /etc/Xfree86.log ?
What am I doing wrong?

Did you try running Xautoconfig4 (I think that's what it's called)?

Use exactly the modes from MacOS, the monitors are fixed frequency :-(
Either via FBDev or out together your own modeline (sorry, I can't
access the iMac I figured this out for the next few weeks)

Have fun*

I'm using XFree 4.1 with kernel 2.4.18pre7 on a iMac 266 and this config
works for me. You may like to try this. Have fun. :)

1. "Network unreachable" on iMac 233 (ethernet)

My iMac 233 with LinuxPPC 1999 Q3 can't communicate with the outside
world, although it can ping itself.

I used linuxconf to set up the network, using ethernet.  I left the
"kernel module" section blank in linuxconf -- what kind of ethernet chip
is in my computer?  MACE? BMAC?

I have a feeling I need to upgrade my kernel.  I'm currently using the
default one.  Which one has the proper ethernet support?  Do I have to
compile it, or can I install it with RPM, or can I just stick a
pre-compiled binary into the "kernels" folder on the mac side, and then
select the new kernel in BootX?

TIA,
Peter Lindberg
