Subject: Xorg + DRI on G3?
Date: Sun, 27 May 2007 14:41:38 -0400 (EDT)
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:

$ startx
xauth:  creating new authority file /home/ajai/.serverauth.3527

X Window System Version 7.2.0

        to make sure that you have the latest version.

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.
