Is there a way to use the TV-Out adapter in the iBook?
I've been messing with it using MergedFB, but all I've got was something weird (I think the TV doesn't handle the frequecy).
The TV is PAL.

Anyone?

Thanks in advance.

I think that at this time only DVI/VGA works (i saw on my powerbook). You should ask to developers in #mklinux or #gentoo-ppc, perchaps there they will answer to you.

What about GATOS drivers?
They only work on x86?

GATOS.... this? : http://r300.sourceforge.net/

You can try these drivers... you have to compile the cvs xorg... but If you don't see it in features section I think you wouldn't have improovements from the instalaltion of that drivers.

I was talking about these drivers.
They are masked in portage (-ppc), so I guess they don't work with PPC. :p

GATOS will be included with the next major release of X.org, so while it may not solve your problems now, it should be supported in the near future. :)

Nice.

I emerged the latest xorg beta, which sould include that feature, but had problems with DRI, even after compiling Mesa CVS.

Guess I'll just wait for the official release then. :)

On the G3 iBook I haven't suceeded activating the VGA-Out adaptor, only noise on the screen.
I haven't got a TV adaptor. Would be interesting buying one if you succeed with that.

I made MergedFB working, so now I have a clone mode (VGA out is the same of the TFT) with 3D DRI acceleration.
You must use this simple configuration:
MergedFB Xorg.conf


I guess it's possible...
