Re: Configuring XFree86 on PowerBook G3 Lombard (Bronze)
You are correct: This thread has been discussed many times:
I suppose that I might have found these earlier if I had known the
relationship between the Mach64 and the ATI 3D Rage Pro LT... I'd been
searching using the phrase "lombard ATI 3D".
What _is_ the relationship between Mach64 and ATI Rage?

reassuring answer it that it does! and with acceleration ( if you are
for a challenge. . see http://people.debian.org/~daenzer/ for the relevant
to begin with, the video chip is ati mach64, so the relevant bits of your
xfree86 config should look something like
Identifier "Lombard LCD"
Identifier "Lombard ATI"
Option "DMAMode" "mmio"
Device "Lombard ATI"
Monitor "Lombard LCD"
Modes "1024x768" "800x600" "640x480"
