I did apt-get update today and installed the latest version of the
kernel image 2.6.11 package, whether that is still 2.6.11-1 I don't
remember, but actually under the advice of Sven I did install the
powerpc-smp one. As I figurred on boot my sccreen goes blank while the
rest of the starrtup happens. But as I told Sven I would "play ball"
and file official bug reports against the kernel package. So does this
qualify for a bug report, and/or could somebody point me to the process?
Also I am using the xserrver package from the unstable branch, What does
it mean when you start it and the error reported was that it could not
find a valid framebuffer device?
And just to clarify I know it says this because I have booted with
video=ofonly, logged in, and then run startx, but the framebuffer I am
suposed to use is aty128fb. But my fear is that if the video=ofonly is
passed to the kernel at login that that will stop the x-server from
being able to access the aty128 framebuffer, could someone tell me if my
fears are justified in that?
