Hi all, I'm new here.
I installed Arch in my macmini (G4) using your wiki (great guide),  
but I'm having some problem to proceed in arch.
I'm trying to install X, so I installed: Xorg (and dependencies),  
xf86-video-ati, xf86-input-keyboard, xf86-input-mouse. I configured X  
with xorgconfig (I think correctly) but when I try "startx" I've  
black screen, and monitor does like there is no signal (appears a  
popup who search for digital or analogic signal). I modified monitor  
vertical sync like in monitor manual but nothing, X doesn't start.  
It's not possible to use hwd on ppc to configure it?

I think that this is a great project (and arch is a great distro),  
thanks for your work.
