Ive used Gentoo for years but never on PPC.
Im trying to get X up and running on an old G3 (B&W) Mac.
I have agp and drm enabled in the kernel:
$ dmesg | grep agp
Linux agpgart interface v0.101 (c) Dave Jones
$ dmesg | grep drm
[drm] Initialized drm 1.1.0 20060810
[drm] Initialized r128 2.5.0 20030725 on minor 0
I have built the X server and all libs with dri enabled.
I have tried three ways to configure: first using xorgconfig; then with an
xorg.conf from when this machine ran FC6; and finally with Xorgautoconfig.
None of these has given me a working config.
Here's what I see when I run X:
xauth: creating new authority file /home/ajai/.serverauth.3527

Fatal server error:
could not open default font 'fixed'
XIO: fatal IO error 104 (Connection reset by peer) on X server ":0.0"
after 0 requests (0 known processed) with 0 events remaining.
Not sure why it says it can't find any fonts, but Im more concerned with
the "end of block range" error.
