I was never able to get it to work... iBook G3 ATI Radeon. And it will be convenient for me too!

The only thing I found was some hack that consist of booting the iBook with the external monitor plugged in.

i tried too the trick of plug the external monitor and reboot.. so didn't work :(
With xfree4.3 i was able to use the external video so the laptop monitor was flickering, but almost it wokrs...

The problem is with xorg, the wiki refers too to xfree. So i still no hope :(

Who try it with xorg?

regards
