I have gentoo 2008.0_beta2 running on my G4 1.33GHz iBook X server works with radreon driver
most everything works except on firefox blue appears as pink and text is missing from several places.
First the color issue:
Blue text appears as pink only if it is visible in the window when it first appears if i scroll down using the scroll bar
all text is fine if text is half on in half out the window it is bicolor top half pink bottom half blue. If I run the cursor over
the text it turns blue also at the gentoo web page the blue text in the black bar does not appear unless I run the cursor over
it and it disappears if I move to a tabbed window and back only to reappear again when I run the cursor over the area.
Also the text in this entry text area turns red only to turn back to black if I move the cursor to the end of the line and hit the
space bar.
Second missing menu text:
I have eclipse installed and I see some of the text and menu options but not all. If I go to Windows on the eclipse sdk
and select preferences I can see the the window fine but there are no options on the left side of the window if I take the
cursor and click in that area it will change the options on the right hand side but again some text is missing.
This is also happening on my G3 Clamshell that I have also installed 2008.0_beta2 on it also.
I hope this enough information I am pleased with gentoo and I usually have no problems Thank You

Make sure that your color depth is set to 24 bit, I think there's still issues with 16 bit on big endian machines.

I would like to thank you for your reply and let you know that your suggestion fixed the color
problems on both my G3 and G4 iBooks but I still have the problem of the missing text in eclipse.
I only have eclipse on my G4 iBook but I have both eclipse 3.2 from gentoo portage and eclipse 3.3
installed from the tar file in my /opt directory and both have the same problem of missing text in the
preference section as I described above. Thank you again for your help.

I would like to add that I installed the eclipse tar file for ppc from the eclipse web site on my
G3 Clamshell and all Text appears as it should so it would appear that the eclipse problems
are isolated to the G4 iBook.

We're still not sure what breaks the text on eclipse, there's a bug open on that in bugzilla with no real solution yet. Sorry! If you have any suggestions, please let us know.
