Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 136168
15" G4 Ti !gigabit PowerBook ends up with a dud xorg.conf and X enabled
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:10:52 EST
The text mode install (the minimal Personal option) of FC2 results in
an invalid /etc/X11/xorg.conf file but with X enabled.
Consequently, when the system boots, X is started but with a stuffed
screen - not good.
One workaround is to kill X using <cntrl>-<alt>-<delete> - you need to
do it 6 times - so that the display manager takes the hint that
there's something wrong and disable the display for 6 minutes. That
gives you enough time to log in and cripple X (I used `chmod a-x
/usr/bin/X11/Xorg`). Back in the distant part <cntrl>-r had a more
immediate effect, but didn't appear to work for me here.
I've attached an xorg.conf file that I cobbled together using google
searches. I'm using it for FC3test2.

Xorg config for 15" 1152x768 PowerBook LCD
Being used with FC3test2
Can you also attach the xorg.conf generated by system-config-display
--reconfig (update to latest rhpl and system-config-display in
rawhide, first please).
Possibly due to a wrong resolution setting.
If you install and run Xautoconfig, does the resulting configuration
file work? I think we need to import some of Xautoconfig's knowledge
about Mac hardware into system-config-display.
