I just wanted to post an FYI that for those that keep up with the ~ppc emerges I think some of the global defaults have changed for the xorg-x11 package. When I first did my emerge I am pretty sure everything worked with defaults however, after several re-builds I found that including the sdk and xprint fixed a problem where all my graphical java projects were failing with a libXp.so.0.6 lib refrence. Including these tags allowed them to work and build. It took me a few hours of rebuilding to figure this out so I wanted to pass it along to maybe save someone some time.

Thanks a bunch. I was about to compile Xorg when I read your post. I am now including those options as well as truetype in the USE variable. I was wondering if you could guide me as to how I might configure Xorg, especially for a Powerbook. Thanks again.

I am at work right now so I dont have my pbook. The configuration file depends on your laptop and video card. The easiest way is to find someone who has your model / video card and use theirs. I got mine by doing a search on this forum for 17" powerbook radeon. You might try the same thing. I know there is also a site devoted to xorg configs. Maybe someone could post that url since I'm not sure what it is. If you have the 17" powerbook with radeon video card I will post mine for you when I get back home.
