Really? I mean: sure? I'm puzzled because this is what lspci tells me: imac ~ # lspci | grep "VGA" 00:12.0 VGA compatible controller: ATI Technologies Inc 3D Rage Pro 215GP (rev 5c)

I read that I could use the useflag "insecure-drivers" on a german howto, if anybody can read it: Chapter 3.2 http://www.gentoo.de/doc/de/dri-howto.xml#doc_chap3

Because I don't like using ~* I'd like to know if there is a difference in Mach64-support on Xorg 6.8.2 and 7.0. And... you know, it takes a while to compile Xorg on this old iMac, so I don't like to more experiments than necessary. ;) Thanks so far Jan -----BEGIN PGP SIGNATURE----- Version: GnuPG v1.4.2 (GNU/Linux) iD8DBQFD2TpAvuM9o4Jvd/8RAmYHAJ0Uu3+ahybibhaW9N9qdxR7Ft1QXACcCVrp 7gHKM8EV11OYVw73R8JLOQM= =C9V2 -----END PGP SIGNATURE----- -- gentoo-ppc-user@g.o mailing list
