if it's not successful... please post more info here.

there's also many other posts in the gentoo forum about that same problem.

Ok my Kernel config

Device-Drivers --> character Devices
/dev/agpgart is enable
Apple Uninorth & U3 AGP Support is enable
Direct Rendering Manager is enable
Ati Radeon is enable
Device-Drivers --> Graphics Support
Ati Radeon display support is enable
DDC/I2C for ATI Radeon support is enable
Lots of debug output from Radeon driver is enable

when i try to make X -configure then come

EE Radeon(0): Cannot read V_BIOS (5)

I think that my Card with my computer incompatible is.

When i try with fbdev configurated with Xorgautoconfig then come :

EE FBDEV(0): FBIOPAN_DISPLAY: Invalid argument

maybe it is too late, but have you tried out "Xorgautoconfig"? That tool is ppc only and generates a working xorg.conf (most of the times...)

just do this:

Code:

$ emerge Xorgautoconfig
$ Xorgautoconfig

Yes i have tried this: But with the generated driver for fbdev dont go. In the kernel is fbdev ready. With 8 bit that go. but with 15 or 16 or 24 bit dont go.
