Recently upgraded my Clamshell iBook to the Firewire model. The video card went from being some pathetic Mach64-based card to a Rage Mobility M3 (128). Among other things, I can no longer get scaled video modes on my panel.
On my old video card, it Just Worked. I added the resolutions to my xorg.conf, and it all scaled nicely. On this one, I can't figure out how to get it to work at all. (Though I've learned a lot about video timings and doubled my refresh rate along the way...)

P.S. I also spent a great deal of effort trying to track down the elusive "rage 128 hang" bug, but I gave up due to lack of information. To ATI: Re-release your old SDKs to the general public!

I never got scaled video modes working on my TiBook with R128 either. I'm not sure it's possible with the current driver.
