Mac Mini framebuffer



-----BEGIN PGP SIGNED MESSAGE-----
Hash: SHA1

Hi folks,

I'm totally new to the powerpc architecture.  I've switched from i386
after I got a new Mac Mini, so all my future development will be on
powerpc!

I installed using the d-i netinst iso, and then switched to unstable.
I've then built linux 2.6.11 with the radeon framebuffer driver and
made this available to yaboot by adding it to /etc/yaboot.conf.  I'm
also using the ati XFree86 driver.  I can see the framebuffer console
during boot, but after X starts (gdm) if i switch back to tty[1-6] the
monitor goes into powersave mode so I can't see anything.

Has anyone else experienced this, or know how to use both the
framebuffer and X11 together?  (I'd like to use OpenGL/DRI, so I'd
like to keep using the ati X driver rather than FBDev.)


Many thanks,
Roger
