Hi,

just a quick message, because I see people telling they successfully enabled 3D accel on their iBook G4, and posting glxgears results of about 500/600 fps.

Well, you can get more (or much more, depending on your display's colour depth), by compiling agpgart and uninorth_agp as modules (device drivers - character devices - /dev/agpgart(AGP support)) and loading them via /etc/modules.autoload.d/kernel-2.6 (before radeon module).

I'm getting 1600fps at 16bpp, 850fps at 24bpp using either XFree or XOrg.

Hth :)
