Re: Request - a working XF86Config-4 for a Powermac 6400/200 - Please.

Hi Winther,

does 'lspci' yield anything useful on your machine? On my machine (not a
powermac!), I obtain something like:

00:10.0 VGA compatible controller: ATI Technologies Inc Rage 128 RE

(You should get something corresponding to you video card.) The
"00:10.0" corresponds to what is asked by the debian install script,
*except* that it is hexadecimal, and XF86Config wants it decimal. (So
for my configuration, I had to tell "PCI:0:16:0" to Debian.)

You can also look at your log files (/var/log/XFree86.0.log, or if you
use gdm /var/log/gdm/\:0.log (this is probably different with kdm or
xdm)), to see if you get more instructive messages.

I'm afraid this won't directly solve your problems, but maybe it'll
bring you a step further.
