Hey everyone,
Getting very close to getting my G3 ibook running gentoo. It has been very hard so far with such old hardware.

The latest problem I have encountered is that xorg does not start due to KMS not being enabled. Now my research so far tells me that I need to disable the radeon frame buffer. I have set radeonfb:off in my yaboot.conf file, I have recompiled kernel with DRM as module, radeon as module and disabled all frame buffers including radeon. Leaving framebuffer support on, with no drivers.

However when my system boots I have radeonfb loading as normal every time. Anyone got any ideas?
