PowerMac G5, GeForce FX 5200, black screen


This is probably an old issue, possibly discussed before, even on this list.

I've been holding my linux-image as version 3.2.0-2 to avoid the problem.

So, the problem: after upgrading to 3.2.0-4, X display is not working.
According to Xorg.log everything is as before, but the screen remains
black. (At boot the text console is ok.)

I'm using kernel command line:


and xorg.conf:

Section "Device"
    Identifier  "Configured Video Device"
    BusID       "PCI:240:16:0"
    Driver      "nouveau"
    Option      "Monitor-TV-1"  "Configured Monitor"
    Option	"NoAccel"	"true"

Section "Monitor"
    Identifier  "Configured Monitor"
    Option      "Ignore"        "true"

Section "Screen"
    Identifier  "Default Screen"
    Device      "Configured Video Device"

In addition, I've tried to add /etc/modprobe.d/nouveau.conf:

nouveau noaccel=1

It makes no difference.

I'm using Wheezy (7.7) with all latest packages.

The machine is PowerMac7,3 (2x1,8 GHz, 1,25 GB RAM).

Anyone else seen this?
