I am an avid linux user, I have come to really get annoyed with the way Mac OS X goes about doing things, so i was wondering is there any way to get the TV out to work on the powerbook. i have the 1.33 G4 with the M10 Radeon 9600. I know that there is no ati support for ppc linux with their drivers so i don't think that is an option at the moment but i don't know if anything open source has come out for the ati cards on ppc since my absence in the ppc linux world. Thanks in advance for any help.

Would interest me too.
On iBook2 I can't get tv-out and vga-out (with their adaptors) working.
Just to know if I will upgrade to latest iBook or even Powerbook sometime.

It's still a work in progress.

Is there also hope for my old machine with 16MB ATI?
Or is that the same driver technology anyway?

That should already be supported with the GATOS patches.

You mean media-video/ati-gatos-4.4.0? That is masked for ppc.
I looked at sourceforge, same version: ati.4.4.0: X.org 6.7.0 driver from 2004-09-2.

No, I mean the patches against xorg: http://gatos.sourceforge.net/theater_out.php

I could be more specific if you could tell us exactly what video card you've got.

Sorry. lspci says: Radeon Mobility M6 LY of this G3 dual usb iBook.
I understand theater_out is an additional module.

Moreover is there also something similar for vga-out?

Can you say something more detailed about theater_out in combination with my radeon? I have to patch xorg itself? Could that generally be done by a USE flag in future?

To be honest, you know what I know. The only project that would have patches that would let you use TV Out would be GATOS. Look through the mailing lists and see if anyone has gotten it working on your model.

Sorry :p
