Subject: RE: ATI configuration?
Date: Thu, 4 May 2006 08:33:19 -0700
I got the fbdev version of the config file working by setting the default
depth to 16 instead of 24.  This is an old 233 mhz box, and slow video isn't
going to make that much difference, I think.  I would like to know at some
point how to get ATI video going with "real" drivers for my faster machine
when I move it from OS X to gentoo - maybe I have to compile it into the
kernel when I do my genkernel -menuconfig all command?

Thanks!

You should probably take a look at the PPC FAQ[1].  I'm not exactly sure
which chipset your Mac has, but if you provide the output of
Xorgautoconfig --dump, I'll take a look at it.
