I've been having lots of problems installing the 11.3 milestones on a
Geode based Panel PC. This is a reasonably recent machine (purchased
2008) albeit low spec - 500MHz CPU, 1G RAM and 8G CF card. Built-in WiFi
and Bluetooth, though the vt6655 module for these seems very buggy
The latest issue I'm facing is that the display auto-configuration gets
it wrong - the text during boot is legible (mode 0x315, display is
800x600 native) but later splits to two different (but possibly related)
Text consoles (Control-Alt-F1 etc) show just a mass of near-random
colours, like my old Sinclair spectrum did when it overheated. However,
the system hasn't crashed:
Control-Alt-F7 takes me to XFCE (lightweight desktop) which runs OK,
except that the display resolution seems wrong and the title bar of each
window is corrupt.
Looking at /var/log/messages/Xorg.log gives few clues, the Geode LX
video chipset seems to be recognised and at 800x600, but I don't know
where else to look. Nothing obvious in Bugzilla searching for Geode etc.
Has anyone any suggestions before I open another bug?
