Hey people!!

I just installed xorg and seted xorg.conf. I did the startx but it didn't work. I was reading some things. Every body say there're no drivers for nvidia ppc.

My question is what I have to install???¿ I've got a powerbook g4 12" with this especifications:

I'm so nOOb like my gentoo forum status :D Some friends tell that I've to install open source drivers. But from where? what drivers. You know what I try to say? I'm lost like the Ocean 815 :P

Thanks everybody !!!

would be nice to know how you emerged xorg-x11 ( post the output of emerge -pv xorg-x11).
Please provide as many info as possible and read the faq before asking :

http://www.gentoo.org/doc/es/gentoo-ppc-faq.xml

Nvidia doesn´t provide any drivers for ppc ( same as ATI btw) so you have to use the opensource driver nv ( or maybe try the experimental nouveau driver that is making good progress afaik).

saludos ;)
