I've just installed Fedora on a computer at a lab that I work in, but Xorg won't start.
The card is ATI Rage 128 AGP (this box is old. real old. so old that installation took 1.5 hours). lspci says that it's on bus "0:10.0" with driver "aty128fb"
First problem was that X won't detect it, and when I ran "X -configure" the generated xorg.conf has bus ID "0:16:0" (hex - decimal conversion?), and X is happy with this ID.
So now that X can detect the card, the next error (which is the one I'm currently stuck on) is that X refuses to use the frame buffer. Under my /dev, there's /dev/fb, and /dev/fb0 symlinked to it. In the log, X tried to look for files /dev/fb1 through /dev/fb9, and gave errors files not found, then gives error no valid frame buffer found, and exits. I tried to symlink /dev/fb1 to /dev/fb as well, then the file not found errors only range from /dev/fb2 through /dev/fb9. So apparently X does see the frame buffer file, but doesn't think it can be used?
Any tips as to where/what I should look?
PS. Sorry I can't post original outputs from the box. That machine doesn't have network access.
