I'm installing YDL CS 1.2 on a Pismo, and I've ran into a
few problems. I've followed the procedures I found on
various Linux mailing lists and FAQ's regarding installing
Linux on a Pismo (i.e. using files and yaboot_0.6 from http://ppclinux.apple.com/~benh/).
During installation, the mouse and X server configuration
failed. After rebooting and logging in as root, I tried
running mouseconfig and Xconfigurator, but neither would
run. I "fixed" the problem by creating a /etc/sysconfig/
mouse file and by renaming /etc/X11/XF86Config.eg as /etc/
X11/XF86Config. I haven't modified it, and it seems to
work with Xpmac.rev10 (after "fixing" a problem with startx
which I will mention next). What should the XF86Config
file look like for a Pismo?
I also had problems with startx and the man pages. Both
returned the message "error in loading shared libraries libstdc++-libc6.1-2.so.3: No such file or directory." In my
/usr/lib/ directory, there's a libstdc++-libc6.1-1.1.so.2
which is linked to libstdc++-2-libc6.1-1.1-2.9.0.so, so I
tried the following:
% cd /usr/lib
% ln -s libstdc++-2-libc6.1-1.1-2.9.0.so libstdc++-libc6.1-2.so.3
Then both startx and man would work. I'd like to know if
what I did was correct, which file libstdc++-libc6.1-2.so.3
should really be linked to, and if the correct target file
wasn't installed properly for some reason, how to complete
When I exit X, I see multiple "Misaligned data in rage128im.c"
messages on the screen. Should I be concerned?
Thanks in advance for your help,
