I've checked the nouveau sites a bit, but PPC isn't their top concern.
I chatted with a fellow over at the ubuntu-ppc IRC channel and
apparently the PPC version is released at the same time as the regular
Ubuntu releases (tomorrow, I gather). He also said that even with
Ubuntu getting nouveau to work is hit or miss, depending upon you
hardware. I was cautioned not to expect too much even if I did get it
to work. I think I'll DL the Meercat PPC image and at least try the
live boot on this box. If it works I will try to repartition the box
and dual boot Debian & Ubuntu.
