Hi all,

I recently bought a 17inch Powerbook with the radeon mobile 9700 graphic card. I installed Gentoo with Xorg 6.7 and tried to start the X Server, but the picture wasn't very clear. There was a lot of flickering. Does anyone here has a solution for this problem? Is the Ati Radeon Mobile 9700 Graphics Card already supported?

Thanks for any advice.

Sebastian

Support for those PowerBooks is only very recent, I'd first try to upgrade to the newest kernel, and maybe then try xorg-6.8.
