I'm running Xubuntu (via LTSP) on a G5 Powerpc and get a segfault
when starting Xorg:

    (II) VGA(0): No legacy BIOS found -- trying PCI
    (II) Attempted to read BIOS 64KB from /sys/bus/pci/devices/0000:00:10.0/rom: got 44KB

    Fatal server error:

The logs are at:

I also have a G4 iBook and a G3 Bondi iMac that do not segfault.
(All three machine network boot.)
