Thanks for giving it a go !
> Does xorg already work on powerpc?
I've run 6.8.1 on
- rev B iMac (Rage 3D Pro 215GP, accel disabled).
- 700Mhz eMac (Nvidia GeForce2 MX)
- 12" 1.33G G4 powerbook (Nvidia GeForce G5200)
and Martin Minkus has run it on a 350MHz iMac, Rage 128VR.
It hasn't worked on ATI Radeon-based machines yet: looks like a range
check will have to be relaxed in the ofw syscons mmap code. So, out of
luck with the miniMac until I get that tested. Plus I'm going to update

That is a relic of syscons: the keyboard isn't attached until USB is
probed. I'm thinking of putting in a hack to allow the keyboard to be
accessed by OpenFirmware until it is probed by h/w - this will allow
breakpoints to be set during boot.
>BTW, I put this information on the wiki
Thankyou for that and also the multitude of packages that you've built :)
