I have been playing around with the desklamp style iMacs today (white with a half sphere
base and flat screen mounted on a chrome arm) and here is a X11 config file that
successfully boots them up. The screen looks a little funny while booting and then
flashes to a red color before loading the login screen. Once at the login screen
everything looks perfect.
Maybe we can get this included in the /opt/ltsp/ppc/etc tree named XF86Config-4.desklamp
or something. Then the default configuration will boot Bondi Blue iMacs, the
XF86Config-4.indigo will boot indigo iMacs, and the XF86Config-4.desklamp will boot the
In order to get this file I just booted the iMac from the newest Ubuntu PPC liveCD and
stole the /etc/X11/xorg.conf it created. No modifications and it works perfectly. So
anyone who needs to create a config for another flavor iMac, give the Ubuntu LiveCD a try.
Hope this helps someone.
