Brief. Just some line of text for explaining what most
people keep asking.
Nov 2002: Apple reviews its iBooks. More powerful CPUs,
larger disks, cheaper price, but expecially new graphic cards.
Jesus how much problems this gave to linux.
Seems that more and more mac users like to try linux on
their macs. Speed? mah.
What means anything here is that who tried debian onto the
latest "radeon 7500 ibooks" experienced huge problems.
Benh (k dev) and Michel Daenzer (X dev) tried resolving this problems asap.
Refer to the official debian's ppc ml
for more infos.
Well, it seems that now stuff is been fixed with some trick, and the latest
benh kernel will resolve temporary this problems. At the time
of this writing, Ben is expecting some data (specs and possible some code) from
ATI, which seems to be quite lazy.
please don't bother developers and supporters for having your
graphic card working with 6G colors 3d accelerated
you card should work more or less right now. Maybe a bit unstable,
afaih, but that's it
it is important you browse debian's archivesbefore asking here and
there "hei people, make my radeon working"
