I'm really feeling like an idiot lately... I guess that perhaps my first
venture into the world of XFree86 would probably have been easier if it
wasn't on an ibook -- but we use what we have. :)
I guess I'm looking for someone to hold my hand helping me to get OpenGL
to work. I tried to recompile a kernel, and on boot I end up with a
"mon>" prompt, with a bunch of options, the only useful one being x for
exit. Immediately after, I get kernel panic. Ugh.
That said, I have a perfectly working pre-compiled 2.4.20-rc4-benh kernel
from linuxppc. I have everything but 3D acceleration working. I have
tried a lot of things, but seem to be missing a key somewhere... I
managed to download (via apt-get by adding a new line in sources)
drm-trunk, and used make-kpkg modules to get a .deb file (which I dpkg -i
installed)... But now dont' knwo what to do with it...
I seem to have everything I need it the XF86Config-4 file... but still
when running glxinfo don't have direct rendering.
Oh, and my ibook is the original ibook2 with a Rage 128, not a raedon.
Anybody want to help this poor soul? I'd happily buy you a cup of coffee
the next time you're in Northern Michigan (US).. :)
