Hi there,
reading the http://www.gentoo.org/doc/en/dri-howto.xml on hardware accel. i saw that on PPC 2.6.19 kernel there is no MTTR support in menuconfig> processor menu.
Can it still work without it? Or getaround?

As you see in the link below, MTRR are special registers on Intel Compatible Processors. It doesn't make sense on PPC :p. Afaik, most accelerated drivers now use DMA to achieve the same result, so it's not a big deal anyway.
