This is because you're using radenfb and not of anymore. The flickering
goes away once X started up.

As a workaround I've put an Xserver that is known to work on the G4
ibook at:
it's built against testing though, so you need at least libfreetype6 and
libc6 from testing.  Copy it to /usr/local/bin and adjust the /etc/X11/X
symlink. I have a patch for the debian X packages here but need a chance
to test it on Matthias's machine...
