Re: Configuring XF4 for Lombard (works with accel!)

i got it to work. being an end-user is easy.

install XF-4.0.1-12.deb, if you -version X you get XF 4.0.2 but whatever..

the ati_drv.o file on the latest deb only looks for r128 and radeon
chips, so..

because you need to compile new drivers, you'll have to grab the source
as indicated on http://linuxppc.org/documentation/xf4/
also rsync the latest drivers as indicated..

do cd xc/programs/Xserver/hw/xfree86/drivers/ati
do make
and copy ati_drv.o to /usr/X11R6/lib/modules/drivers

i've attatched my XF86Config file.. 
other notes: i use yaboot.

i imagine compiling the entire source and just following the
directions at linuxppc.org will work also.. which is what i tried and
failed at originally..
