I got X running on my powerbook with Xpmac.  I found the binary in an rpm.
Does anyone know if there is source to this Xpmac.

As far as I can tell, you must currently always boot the Lombard (that's
the 1999 bronze keyboard powermac) with bootx.  The framebuffer driver
doesn't seem to initialize it correctly if you use yaboot.

I will probably try XF4 at some point.
