Hello every one here on the forums!
I am trying to set ubuntu up on my powermac g5 and I am having some trouble configuring X. When i boot Yaboot is fine and then i get a bit of splash then black
I tried just putting the following example of xorg.conf in the /etc/X11 but I still get a blank screen on boot. I think that is because the radeon-kms driver isn´t installed.
So i did a bit of googling and i found this documentation from Ubuntu.
It suggested the r300g driver would work.
So I tried to purge the old driver by
but i don´t think the fglrx is the right driver on Ubuntu powerpc as it wouldn't purge! How can i find out what driver I am currently using or purge the driver without being specific?Code:sudo apt-get remove --purge fglrx
Is it also possible to install the r300g through apt-get? I think that would be better for me as I am in a "bare bones" system. So would the code would be ;
Which was taken from;Code:sudo apt-get install libgl1- mesa-dri/lucid libgl1-mesa-dri-dbg/lucid libgl1-mesa-glx/lucid libgl1-mesa-glx-dbg/lucid libglu1-mesa/lucid mesa-utils/lucid
Is there any other configuration i need to do after that like reconfigure the xorg.conf file? What would be my best options for the xorg.conf? Any help on this would be hugely appreciated I've never configured X before, still a bit of a noob two years down the line!
