Pegasos, X and Ubuntu Feisty

April 22, 2007

Well, yet again X do not work on the Pegasos due to pciscan issues. Unmounting /sys is a simple, but ugly, workaround. An other but still ugly solution is to recompile xorg and force it to use /proc for pciscan, which I did.

The repository is the same as for edgy but edgy replaced with feisty. Note the trailing / after binary is IMPORTANT.

Add that line to your /etc/apt/sources.list file and make a system update and X should start again (that is apt-get update and then apt-get dist-upgrade).

It is also good to install my public key so the packages can be verified for correctness.

Install it by running:
wget -O- | sudo apt-key add -
