Will the 2004.0 LiveCD's (I presume number 2) have a version of xfree86 that will
let me have 2D for a radeon 9600 pro on a powermac g5?

I plan on doing an install direct from the LiveCD's (stage 3) and not from the internet for my powermac G5. Hence my question,

Running my dual G5 1.8 with ati 9600 at 600fps (without DRI). Faster than my Tibook with DRI :-)

I only seem to get around 100 fps with my powermac dual 1.8 and radeon 9600 pro.

What xfree did you use (I used 4.3.99 and kernel 2.6.5_rc2-benh1)? Perhaps you have something else in your XF86Config.The relevant parts from mine:
Code:

Section "Module"
  Load         "type1"
  Load         "speedo"
  Load         "freetype"
  Load         "dbe"
  Load         "extmod"
  Load         "glx"
#  Load         "v4l"
EndSection



and

Code:

Section "Device"
  BoardName    "Unknown"
#  BusID        "240:16:0"
  Driver       "ati"
  Identifier   "Device[0]"
  Option       "dpms"
  Option       "UseFBDev"
  #Option  "MonitorLayout" "TMDS, TMDS"
  Screen       0
  VendorName   "Unknown"
EndSection




Any quick comments/ideas?
