attach this file /var/log/XFree86.0.log
And i want to know if it's possible to export it in a mac partition ?
on a floppy ? Anyway, i'll take a chance by
mount -t hfs /dev/sdxxxx /mnt
Your mac partition is probably on sda. If you want to know which
partition just enter the following:
Enter <p> to print out the partition and map. If your hierarchial file
system (hfs) partition were on partition 4, then
you would do this: mount -t hfs /dev/sda4 /mnt. This will mount a
partition of the type (-t) hfs at partition 4 at the /mnt directory.
Enter <man mount> for information on the mount command. Once mounted you
can write to the partition logged in as the root user.
You can't use the floppy with a mac. Unless you have a Quadra 900 or
950. Then you can eject the disk. And
that's about it. Except successfully load the module for it and have the
nice feeling that you have successfully
compiled a module that loads on a Quadra 9xx machine.
pasting you what is the message :
(II) VGA : generic VGA driver
(EE) No devices detected
Don't use the generic VGA driver. Use the fbdev (frame buffer device
Fatal server error :
No screen found
Does anyone have a clue ?
I did the configuration with debconf. Do i need something to change in
the xfree86-config file ?
Yes. A few quirks on the mac side you'll have to address: (1) watch the
configuration of your mouse, change it to
Option "Device" "/dev/adbmouse"
Option "Protocol"" "busmouse"
and (2), look for the default depth toward the end of the XF86Config-4
file. Match it with the depth that you used on
the MacOS side before bootstrapping into LInux. Use 8 for 256, 15 for
thousands, and 24 for millions.
The Quadra 650 should run quite nicely. Might stick with a simple window
manager like fvwm instead of the
CPU intensive gnome-session or kde. Unless you want to wait for half an
hour to start your X session.
