I have problem with newest Sax2-4.2.7 PPC. I am bought
SuSE 7.0 PPC, and
it seems Sax2 supplied with this distribution is outdated and does not
work well with newest Apple hardware.
I have downloaded new saxtools 2-1-16 and Sax2-4.2.7. However, Sax2-4.2.7
complains about unresolved depencency problems (perl-storable,
perl-gettext, libXrender, libc.so.6). I have all perl, mesa and
XFree86-4.01 modules installed (from 7.0).
Please inform me which packages need to be installed (and downloaded
from) to resolve depencency problems.
I just put a new sax2 for 7.0 on the ftp server:
It should work for r128, ati, mga based cards.
Possible that it can handle the controlfb, valkyriefb and platinumfb
based onboard chips.
It can not help you with dual head configurations, just because the
Xserver can not handle that.
If you have two or more available cards/chips in your machine do it that
sax2 -p (this will give you a list of available boards and the used
driver at the end of the line)
sax2 -c X (where X is the number of the desired board. If you see
"unknown" or such don't use that one.)
A safe call for such a mutli board configuration would be:
sync ; sax2 -c 0 -m fbdev
It should work with 4.0.1 and 4.0.2.
