I have been seriously interested in trying out Gentoo on my Powerbook, however I want to verify some info before I go in and make the plunge.

First off, I have a Powerbook G4 with the Radeon 9700 graphics card.

Does XGL work with the XORG7.1 r300 3D Video Driver?

I have been a long time Ubuntu user under PPC and occasional Gentoo user under x86-64, however all the guides that I have found for Ubuntu are x86 and x86-64 only, no PPC. I have been told that I may want to look at Gentoo because of the avaliablity of packages and overall support under PPC.

If XGL is possible, what steps need to be performed to get it working?
Any particular USE flags that are necissary in the build process?
Is there a guide avaliable that deals specifically with PPC XGL or under Gentoo is the x86 guide also applicable to a PPC?

I saw a posting or two on these forums saying that it "has" been done but no real elaboration into how it was done.

Thank you for your assistance,
Tyson Edwards

Nixnut, I just wanted to make sure that it would work on PPC before I started the whole process.

Is it true that XGL will work on PPC with the open source Radeon Drivers or is it out of reach at the moment?

I read through the article mentioned about XGL, however it did not say anything about PPC or any other architectures however did mention the Binary drivers that are x86 and x86-64 only.

Thank you for your assistance,
