Re: can not launch xfree86 on debian linux on ibook G3
thanks for your reply!
is it the MUST to make xfree86 work on ibook that to install the
"drm-trunk-modules-src"? or it 's just an option?
This "unresolved symbles" problem comes when I install the
drm-trunk-module-*.deb with command "dpkg -i drm-trunk-module-*.deb"
in my case
it was fine to install x-window stuff and xserver-xfree86-dri-trunk,
xlibmesa3-dri-trynk with the command: "apt-get install
x-window-system-core x-window-system" and
"apt-get install drm-trunk-module-src xserver-xfree86-dri-trunk
after this failure when i did "dpkg-i-drm-trunk-module-*.deb"
then I do "startx" the screen turn to black ( grey actually)
immidiately and hunged.
i have to powerdown with power botton , but next time when I boot the
linux, it tried to start the X and run into the same problem.( screen
trun to black and machine hunged).
I searched some mail-list about installation of debian linux on ibook
3, I found another guy run in to the problem of "unresolved symblies in
gamma.o" and fixed that with changing XF86Config-4 ( add the option
Chipset ATI range" which is defirent from mine)
I tried to do like that but it didn't work either.
now I am out of ideas
any suggestion is wellcomed

Where does it say 'error'? This is harmless because you don't need the
I noticed that when I did
Apt-get install x-window-system-core x-window-system
The version of x-window-system is 4.1.8 or something like that
Is it the reason?
Hardly (even though that would be a funny version), though it depends
what the problem is. :)
