Let's try some more info here to see if anyone can help.
I am unable to boot ppc indigo vintage iMacs from ltsp. Boots to
command prompt just fine, but when startx is issued it fails. So I
tried to load YDL in order to take a working XF86Config from it to slam
on the server, YDL fails to load and startx. So I slapped Ubuntu on it,
bam, it works. So I took the /etc/X11/XF86Config-4 from the working
Ubuntu iMac Indigo. I put the config into
/opt/ltsp/ppc/etc/XF86Config-4.indigo (I figure I would just name custom
configs by mac flavor). Then point in /opt/ltsp/ppc/etc/lts.conf
"XF86CONFIG_FILE = XF86Config-4.indigo" under [ma:ca:dd:re:ss:xx].
Now when I startx it still says I need to specify an XSERVER. Shouldn't
it be getting that from my XF86Config?
Where do I start for troubleshooting this?
