Debian in PowerMac 9600
I am trying to install Debian (Potato) in Powermac 9600 - 250
In the past I had YellowDog install properly in the same machine.
However, I am really having a hard time making things work with Debian.
Number 1 problem is with BootX, that will not boot unless I have the
"no video driver" checked. It just hangs up with the MacOS window still
open. I tried a series of combinations with the video=XXX option, but
it refuses to work. The video card in the machibe is a Matrox
Once it boots everything will start, until xdm. The screen flashes
3 times, and I don't get a xwindows manager to start (no error
messages). I just get a login prompt. If I try to open a window manager
from the command line I get an error: "cannot open display (null)".
Even if I get into csh, and try to setenv DISPLAY to that specific
machine, I sill get the "cannot open display (null)" error.
