I've had a nightmare getting a working xorg.conf for a "Flower Power" iMac 500mhz, so I' thought I'd share this with others:

It's not great, any feedback and fixes appreciated but it'll at least get you up and running.

HTH.

Does the DRI work? (check your fps in glxgears, for example...)

Unfortunately not, it's just the first working Xorg.conf I've managed to hit upon...

Code:
Question 2: What resolutions does the iMac built-in display support?

Answer: The 15-inch (13.8-inch, diagonal, viewable image size) built-in display supports three resolutions:

* 640x480 at 117Hz
* 800x600 at 95 Hz
* 1024x768 at 75Hz


i assume you have seen that from apple's knowledgebase, seeing as your modeline for 1024 is pretty close.

i'll try and get a hold of a service manual and see if i can get you the exact ranges.
