Hi,
I've just got my new powerbook G4 1.67GHz, Radeon 9700 and I'm experiencing 3 major problems :
- cdrom, it is recognized but it doesn't mount any thing
I have read that in the forum that i should disable scsi support for cdrom but it didn't help I still got the message "Wrong fs type ....."


- Trackpad doesn't work, (keyboard works) I've selected the Apple Desktop Bus support + Suppurt for ADB input devices
I have the /dev/adb device but when I do "#cat /dev/adb" I got "/dev/adb input/output error"


- ALSA, the kernel driver act funky, when I test the sound with "mp123 -v song.mp3", the frame go foward and back the bitrate keep on changing and still no sound

This problems are on kernel-2.6.10-gentoo-r7 and vanilla-2.6.11-r4

If anyone can help me, he/she is really welcome

Hmm... I've been looking at getting the new powerbooks, and I came across the following post:

https://forums.gentoo.org/viewtopic-t-304505-highlight-apple+powerbook.html

Accourding to them, the trackpad isn't supported, since they changed it from ADB to USB, and there's no drivers yet. Also, the sound doesn't work. However it seems like it will be fixed in short order.
