ydl 6.2 installed on g4 mac as surf-os and configured

In order to improve video rendering by using ati x video driver, I had to go through several reboots, looking at /var/log/Xorg.0.log and changing /etc/X11/xorg.conf
It works fine now.:

Using the framebuffer device should not be the default on such a machine IMHO.

The mouse input device is still unconfigured, so there is a warning in the log that default values are used, but that's OK.

Upon upgrade of the system software /etc/yaboot.conf looks like this:
Code: Select all
# yaboot.conf generated by anaconda

boot=/dev/hda2
init-message=Welcome to YDL!\nHit <TAB> for boot options

partition=3
timeout=80
install=/usr/lib/yaboot/yaboot
delay=2
enablecdboot
enableofboot
enablenetboot
magicboot=/usr/lib/yaboot/ofboot

image=/vmlinux-2.6.29-3.ydl61.4
   label=2.6.29-3.ydl61.
   read-only
   initrd=/initrd-2.6.29-3.ydl61.4.img
   append="rhgb quiet root=LABEL=/"

image=/vmlinux-2.6.27-1.ydl61.5
   label=linux
   read-only
   initrd=/initrd-2.6.27-1.ydl61.5.img
   append="rhgb quiet root=LABEL=/"

It works fine now.:


I may have to try those settings ... not sure if that's the same as what I tried already, though. I had trouble using anything but the framebuffer on mine (see here).

But :
[surfer@localhost ~]$ uname -r
2.6.29-3.ydl61.4


What's the problem here? Looks correct to me.
