Just to let you know that I used to compile all the stuff from the
nouveau howto (drm, libdri, nouveau DDX and maybe some other stuff) on
my powerbook (NV34) and got this driver working quite well (even
dual-screen); it's been something like two years ago, with a much more
older kernel. So, it was possible, but I didn't try with newer release.
