Comment 1 nello martuscielli 2011-10-25 18:06:25 UTC
it seems to be present a similar problem on PowerPC too.
board: Acube Sam460ex with SM502

here Xorg.0.log

I sent out a series of patches to the xorg-devel list.  Feel free to revive

Note that the title of this bug isn't exactly true, because Xorg works just fine without patching on a Loongson-based Fuloong system which uses a SiS 315 video chip.

The problem seems to be related specifically to a Silicon Motion video chip in combination with some non-x86 architectures.

opened a new bug ticket for PowerPC

Mass closure: This bug has been untouched for more than six years, and is not obviously still valid. Please file a new report if you continue to experience issues with a current server.
