Re: Can't get xorg working on iBook - Help please!
It's alright to be new. I was there once, and still feel that way
sometimes. One wag on IRC said that linux on powerpc was a continuous
to see the contents of a file displayed in the console, use `cat', `more',
`less', or (much less common) `most'. Hence, what was meant was,
root@localhost # cat /proc/fb
and report hte contents of the file to the list here.
PS. If you accidentally cat a binary file, it might contain codes that the
terminal will interpret as commands. Run the `reset' command to recover.

Sorry, I'm pretty new to linux, I don't know what 'using OFfb rather
than aty128fb' means. I tried inputting /proc/fb as root and got
'-bash: /proc/fb: permission denied'. I don't know how to fix this.
If I comment out the 'UseFBDev' line then I get the exact same error
message. If I set the option to false rather than true then I get the
attached error message.
I also tried using Amit's xorg.conf, but got the same error message.
At this point I don't think the problem is related to the xorg.conf
