           Summary: Xorg server hangs on PowerPC if no mouse driver exists
           Product: xorg
           Version: 6.8.1
          Platform: Macintosh
        OS/Version: Linux
            Status: NEW
          Severity: normal
          Priority: P2
         Component: Input/Mouse
        AssignedTo: xorg-bugzilla-noise at freedesktop.org
        ReportedBy: freedesktop at flyn.org

I use a Linux kernel on a PowerPC-based iBook.  My kernel mouse driver is built
as a module.  If I try to init run level 5 and my mouse driver has not been
loaded the X server blanks the screen but does not load.  At this point, the
screen is blank and Ctrl-Alt-Fx will not change virtual terminals.  The computer
is essentially unresponsive.

In the past, a message would print informing me that my X11 server failed to load.

I am using the PowerPC build of Fedora RawHide.  I have also opened a bug in Red
Hat' bug tracking system:
