forget it. :( at least as long as ATI does not give out some more
information, so that people like Ben Herrenschmidt can hack on it.
there is no 3D-acceleration for any Radeon chip >=9500 with free
drivers. ATI does not ship drivers for PPC, so we are lost for now. you
could bug ATI about it, but i doubt they will answer you. my request to
provide drivers for PPC was ignored for two times.

you might check the archives for more info about this topic.
