Re: 3D acceleration for Radeon 9600 Pro chip on PowerBook G4

Michael also recommended that link to me when I submitted my bug report. That why I set my default display to 16 and 3D working. In that there were also patches mentioned. I was hoping some one could at least point me in the direction of were to go to find a good resource to learn how to use the patch. I have patched a Linux box before and would like to learn. Thanks!
