Re: Debian linux on Titanium 400MHz Powerbook: Screen too large?
Thanks for the pointers. This did the trick. I also had to change the
HTiming and VTiming in the Monitor section. I'm guessing that was
necessary, but what do the remaining Timing numbers refer to? And can I
Getting Debian running on the G4 PB has turned out to be a little more
complicated than Yellowdog, which, perhaps not surprisingly required
essentially no interaction or tweaking. Still the payoff of having
dselect and apt-get should more than pay for it.
Now onto sound!
Thanks again, Pete

There's a little extra 'screen' that
spills off my display.
for reference, here is my XF86Config-4 file. It's a hack of several
ones, but, with the exception of the screen spilling over, works.
HorizSync 40 - 100
VertRefresh 40 - 120
HTimings 1280 1296 1408 1536
VTimings 854 855 858 866
Flags "-HSync" "-VSync"
The modes should be "1152x768". The newer titanium powerbooks have
this higher resolution, but this first edition only did 1152x768
For the g4-400, I'd suggest going with a depth of 16 and the
aforementioned 1152x768. That will get you DRI for the all-important
fast GL screen savers.
