    Infill g4?

    Hi all
    Has anyone tried getting Infill G4 to run linux?

    I'm trying a Fedora live CD but can't find the right modeline to get graphics going

    Powerstrip 2.* claims the info is as follows:
    Pixel clock: 38.093 MHz
    Scan rate: 37.200 kHz
    Frame rate: 60.000 Hz

    Code:
                | Horiz | Vert
    ------------+-------+-----
    active      |   800 |  480
    front porch |    32 |    1
    sync width  |    56 |    3
    back porch  |   136 |  136
    total       |  1024 |  620
    According to my calculations, that should translate into the following modeline:
    "800x480" 27.527 800 832 888 1024 480 481 484 620

    Unfortunately, Xorg doesn't accept this, saying "hsync out of range"

    I talked to a developer of UniChrome/OpenChrome driver, he says the driver is really messed up so there's no good way to set the modeline properly.
    It'll take a while for him to get back to the driver, so I guess I'm stuck running windows for now.

    Nope. There are very few devs on the project, and most (if not all) are out of jobs, so they just do it in their free time.
