Yes, the driver was the problem after all. I have the basic stuff working now and wanted to report back here. It turns out that I had "Apple UniNorth & U3 AGP support" configured as a MODULE instead of built-in. Loading the module manually and running X got the basic stuff working. After more tweaking I now have 24bit color running at 1600x1200 ;-) -- A -- gentoo-ppc-user@g.o mailing list
