What video cards is DRI support available for linux under ppc ?

I am particularly interested in the radeon 9600 (early 2004 alu book). I know by searching the forum it was not supported some eight months ago. But what about now ???

From what I understand only the Radeon 9200/9250 chips (RV280) and below are supported. There are experimental F/OSS drivers that you may want to try though.

Thank you for your answer.

The link seems very interesting; not sure I will try though, having seen the hard disclaimer on the front page :oops:
