Re: g4/867 || iBook + Debian || someOtherLinux

You need to make sure you have this modules compiled and avaialble:


as well as the X11R6 drivers.

The stock 2.4.18 woody kernel doesn't have DRM configured, so you
can either install the 2.4.18 XFS kernel which does have the
modules or recompile your own version of the 2.4.18-newpmac.  The simplest
way to keep the stock kernel and add DRI is to copy the
/boot/config-2.4.18-newpmac to /usr/src/kernel-source-2.4.18/

rename it .config

and then, in the source directory, enter

make-kpkg kernel-image --config menuconfig

this will start the kernel building process based on your copied .config
file.  Then, find the DRI
module configuration in the menu under drivers/char/ and select to
build the drm-4 r128 module and dri support.

You don't have to confiure anything else unless you want to really
taylor your own kernel.

exit and save the configuration. and let it do its stuff (an hour on
my imac 500)

when it is built, 

cd ..
dpkg -i <new kernel>.deb

and that will install your new kernel and modules and copy your old
kernel to vmlinux.old

Reboot and you should be OK.
