Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 278991
Xorg unable to find useable screens on ppc live image.
Last modified: 2013-01-09 21:38:26 EST
Summary says it all, live image built with rawhide on 20070905.
Log can be found at http://jkeating.fedorapeople.org/Xorg.0.log.ppc.live
Machine is a ppc mac mini.
Looks like maybe the new randr stuff in the ati driver and just not working on ppc.

We like everything in the bugzilla (with our reponse times, who knows where
your account will be when we actually go and fix it ;-)).
Can you try adding Option "MacModel" "mini" to the driver section of your xorg.conf?
I can when I get back on Wed., or somebody else in the BOS office can poke at it.
That got me further, now I get a stipple pattern but the X is malformed.
Instead of an X it's like <>, really bizarre. But once GNOME takes over the
cursor goes to the normal pointer and looks OK.
Based on the date this bug was created, it appears to have been reported
during the development of Fedora 8. In order to refocus our efforts as
a project we are changing the version of this bug to '8'.
If this bug still exists in rawhide, please change the version back to
(If you're unable to change the bug's version, add a comment to the bug
and someone will change it for you.)
Thanks for your help and we apologize for the interruption.
The process we're following is outlined here:
We will be following the process here:
http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/BugZappers/HouseKeeping to ensure this
doesn't happen again.
This message is a reminder that Fedora 8 is nearing its end of life.
Approximately 30 (thirty) days from now Fedora will stop maintaining
and issuing updates for Fedora 8. It is Fedora's policy to close all
bug reports from releases that are no longer maintained. At that time
this bug will be closed as WONTFIX if it remains open with a Fedora
'version' of '8'.
Package Maintainer: If you wish for this bug to remain open because you
plan to fix it in a currently maintained version, simply change the 'version'
to a later Fedora version prior to Fedora 8's end of life.
Bug Reporter: Thank you for reporting this issue and we are sorry that
we may not be able to fix it before Fedora 8 is end of life. If you
would still like to see this bug fixed and are able to reproduce it
against a later version of Fedora please change the 'version' of this
bug to the applicable version. If you are unable to change the version,
please add a comment here and someone will do it for you.
Although we aim to fix as many bugs as possible during every release's
lifetime, sometimes those efforts are overtaken by events. Often a
more recent Fedora release includes newer upstream software that fixes
bugs or makes them obsolete.
The process we are following is described here:
Fedora 8 changed to end-of-life (EOL) status on 2009-01-07. Fedora 8 is
no longer maintained, which means that it will not receive any further
security or bug fix updates. As a result we are closing this bug.
If you can reproduce this bug against a currently maintained version of
Fedora please feel free to reopen this bug against that version.
Thank you for reporting this bug and we are sorry it could not be fixed.
