Re: X wont start on ibook

I only bought the ibook a few weeks ago. Only took a few weeks to get sick of osx / miss my debian desktop ;)

is your iBook relatively new? does lspci reveal a
  Radeon Mobility 9200 M9+

if so... check out the posts i made last week as i encountered and fixed this...
turns out you need the use the radeonfb (not the OS one) on bootup, and that
requires the 2.6.7 kernel. you also need to tell X to use trhe framebuffer

this will soon be fixed for everyone when 2.6.7 gets accepted into debian :-)
