powerbook wakeup/boot display issue
Forgive me if this has been covered before, there were some messages in
the archive which I couldn't seem to open.
I am new to Linux and have installed Debian Testing on a dual boot with
OSX. I have a powerbook5,8 (one of the last ones, with the high-res screen).
The powerbook sleeps fine I think, but probably about 50% of the time,
on wake-up, the display freezes with a black screen and then slowly
begins to "bleach" white and purple from the top. Obviously I shut down
immediately as this looks dangerous.
Also, probably about 1 in 10 startups causes the same problem.
I've Google'd but can't seem to find a definite fix.
When I type uname -a I get the following:
Linux debian 184.108.40.206-powerpc #1 Mon Dec 4 15:30:06 CET 2006 ppc GNU/Linux
I haven't changed much from the basic install, but I did install pbbuttonsd.
I'm back on OSX for the moment - I dont really want to melt my hardware.
Please let me know if this isn't the appropiate forum for this message,
