i got a message from someone telling me about this two patches. Apparently
kbdrate.patch is needed on some macs since the kbdrate changes in Xfree. I
have no macs, and lost my mail archive, so i don't know if this is still true
with 3.3.6-3, please someone from the debian-powerpc list test it.

The second patch fbdev-dpms.patch contains a patch to have dpms aware fbdev
Xserver. Since i cannot compile, i couldn't test it.

Anyway, i append both patches to this message.

Any news on 3.9.x servers ?

i think it would be nice to have at least a server package, since the rage128
of most modern macs is supported on 3.9.x, but not on 3.3.x, but then maybe
they plan to use xpmac instead.
