Subject: Re: Gentoo 1-4.rc7 LiveCD on a 350Mhz iMac - X trouble
Date: 06 Jun 2003 00:33:56 -0400
I have tried the Gentoo 1-4.rc7 LiveCD on my 600MHz ibook and my 300MHz
G3 Yosemite.  It boots O.K. to command line but when I try to bring up X
after running Xeasyconf, I get a garbled screen.  With what looks like a
(rudimentary widow manager?) but is scrambled on a diagonal.  I have
tried 8 bit and 16 bit.  When I try running...

X -xf86config /etc/X11/XF86Config-4

I get a black screen with an "X" cursor but nothing else.

Any suggestions?
