Been hammering at this for the last couple days.
Resisted the urge to reinstall everything fresh and say forget it...
By carefully inching my way through the LinuxPPC 3dFX HOW-TO
Using the precompiled 2.1.18-4h kernel and the precompiled RPMs of XFree86
4.02-1f, got my XF86Config-4 edited as perinstructions.. and I think I am
I ran into the X server 'respawn' and demoted it to runlevel 3.
When I attempt to startx I get this logfile
A couple things I notice...
it lists Operating System: Linux 2.4.2-1d ppc [ELF]
when dmesg log reports Linux version 2.2.18-4hpmac
(WW) Cannot open APM <== probably important
(EE) TDFX(0): Cannot read V_BIOS (4)
(WW) TDFX(0): Softbooting the board failed.
Anyone out there see anything familiar?
Or better yet, something strange?
Any and all help greatly appreciated.
