You probably don't want to use depth 8? Add

	DefaultDepth	24

to the Screen section (or 16 or 15, and make sure there's a matching
display subsection).

Ack! Tried that too. Now I get the following in the error log:

The screen flashes w/ some colored lines and boxes, then goes black
and the breathing-power-button-light on the front blinks until I
hold cmd-ctrl-alt-del to get back to the shell.

I'm losing hope!

I have seen some problems with older iMacs in the past (Mandrake Linux), especially the Rev types. The problem was some flashing screen, the solutions to this problem were either:

1) Option "composite_sync" "off" (in XF86Config-4)


2) to rename the driver in /usr/X11R6/lib/modules (libi2c.a) to have it switched off.
