Does anyone have a working XFree config file for G4 Cube they can post to this forum? I am fiddling with XFree config for a few days and I can't configure it so the X starts. I tried both "ati" and "r128" drivers, but neither one seem to work. I have the original ATI Rage 128 Pro 16 MB video card. Any help would be appreciated. If you need me to post files, please let me know which file and I will gladly do it. :)

I couldn't get the darn thing working either. Hopefully someone will be able to figure this out...

Have you tried using the ATI FB driver in the kernel, then using the FBdev to startx?

OK, I found a solution myself. I read PPC FAQ at http://www.gentoo.org/doc/en/gentoo-ppc-faq.xml (Read the RTFM :) ), and I emerged xeasyconf. Then I just executed
Code:
Xeasyconf


and let it autodetect everything. Now X works! :D
