ibook g3 config
I've installed Debian on a 500Mhz G3 iBook. For the most part
everything is working but I have a couple of problems I haven't been
able to adequately resolve that maybe somebody can help with.
I can't get my fonts to look right in X11/Gnome. Most fonts are either
much too large or illegible and appear to be too wide/ not tall enough,
like they've been squashed. Based on some Googling I've edited
/etc/X11/fs/config to use 75dpi instead of 100dpi and I've disabled
anti-aliasing for smaller fonts < 10. Emacs no longer takes up half the
screen and is quite usable but most other apps still look terrible.
Sleep doesn't work. The display dims after awhile and the backlight
turns off eventually. The backlight also turns off if I push the power
button, but the machine never actually goes to sleep. The pulsing sleep
light doesn't come on and even when it looks like it's sleeping I can
still access it remotely so I knows it's not asleep. I suspect there's
a package I need to install or configure that I've missed.
I was previously running YDL 3.01 on this machine and this stuff all
worked so I know it's possible. Unfortunately it worked straight after
installing and didn't need to be configured so I have no idea where to
