Hi Kristian.

revision        : 2.3 (pvr 7000 0203)****do you use same revision?????
bogomips        : 1785.85
machine         : PowerBook4,3
motherboard     : PowerBook4,3 MacRISC2 MacRISC Power Macintosh

This is the only difference I have with a friend's ibook, he dont have
problems, and I am only getting problems now with new revision board.
please look for your revision and send me the /proc/cpuinfo.

I use Linux 2.6.3-ben2, gcc3.3.3, XFree86 Version (DRI trunk),
I am not sure if it is a hardware failure issue, maybe my new board is
not fully supported?, cause osx works fine, I am testing with gcc and
till now works, but I only compiled small soft, like wget, bash.
I'm going to try with x server, and reproduce the bug, if not... It must
be a linux ussue with my new board may be?
