Re: After sid dist-upgrade 3d acceleration has gone

I have a Powerbook 5,6 (1.5/1.67 Ghz early '05), where i just installed Debian but Xorg is not even starting at this point, crashes immediately.  I am curious about Xorg identifies the graphics card as a 9600 when in fact it is a 9700.

Have you edited your xorg.conf and if so could you send it to me and I will try it. Not high res screen but maybe some help to both of us ?
