Bug#342053: DirectFrameBuffer crashes on PPC systems if HW accelerated drivers are used

I booted from the CD with "install DEBIAN_FRONTEND=newt"
switched to the F2 console when the "choose language" screen came up.
The hardware info you wanted is:

~# cat /proc/cpuinfo | grep motherboard
Motherboard: PowerMac3,5 MacRISC2 MacRISC Power Macintosh

~# cat /proc/fb
0 ATI Radeon QW

Then I did:

~# echo "disable-module=linux_input" >>/etc/directfbrc
~# export DEBIAN_FRONTEND=gtk
~# debian-installer

It crashed when it tried to initialize the graphical installer

thanks for the detailed report, this is not a crash, but an error message from DFB because of unsupported pixelformat: directfb people, is there a way to fix this ?
