video issues on Yellow Dog 3.0.1

I just finished installing YDL 3.0.1 on an old beige Power Mac G3 366 tower. The installation went very smoothly. Initially when booting into the YDL OS, there were no issues. However at a certain point, the system reported an issue regarding video and got stuck there. Now all I have is a black screen.

During the installation process, the system detected the monitor and video card. It identified the monitor as generic and the video card (not the original card** which came with the G3, but a PCI upgrade: Radeon 7000 for Mac) as a Radeon VE. I readjusted these selections for these devices to their actual values: Mag DX15T for the monitor and Radeon 7000 for the video card. Then, I completed the rest of the installation.

I suspect that the issue might have to do with the video card.

I took a picture of the error message which popped on screen and have posted it on this link:

Any assistance in trying to decipher this issue is greatly appreciated.


** Apple System Profiler identifies the original video card as an ATI mach 64_3DU Pro.
