Re: apt-cdrom-install not found (?)

If it has the agp port in the back, try connecting a external monitor, as it would single out refresh/synch on the internal one as the issue.

Hello to everyone

Thank you very much for your replies!

OK, I booted the machine into single user mode and:

1) The graphics adapter is an ATI Rage 128. As far as I can tell, it is properly recognised. (The machine is an iMac G3 @400MHz slot loader by the way)

2) Sorry, I am not using Debian testing.

3) The HorizSync, VertRefresh business did not help at all

4) I also tried various settings from http://mac.linux.be/content/g3-imac-tray-loader-slotloader-all-versions-xorgconf but without any joy at all.

5) When I set the ModeLines for the resolutions it dies for good. I can't even get back to the command line. Upon restart the log file is full of messages from the driver that it waits for [something something] to go into idle mode.

6) Tried the VESA driver....no

This is likely just a monitor / graphics adapter issue. This +hsync +vsync business brought back memories....Not good ones.

Is there a lookup table indexed by the monitor type for these parameters by now?

Looking forward to hearing from you

Are you using debian testing? I've tried to install it yesterday on powerbook
5,6 G4 and graphics is heavily broken there. If video=radeonfb:off then
graphics is ok, but gui session hangs everythin in some time.

WBR, Vladimir Berezenko.
