Well, the output isn't that good with "video=ofonly", but it is the only
config in yaboot that takes effect. It creates a fb1 in /dev, which is
the Cineam Display on the DVI port.

What is the difference between video=ofonly and video=radeonfb ?
radeonfb does not create a framebufferdevice in /dev/fb1. Only fb0.
Any tips ?

Have tried the latest stable X.org now. But I can't get a proper output
on the cinema display. The LCD of the Powerbook is working perfect.

If Anyone out there has a working xorg.conf for the Ciname Display,
please let me know (yaboot.conf, kernel config are welcome).

Nice Sunday,
