What error messages (if any) are you getting? If you'd like to contribute content, let us know. I have been considering installing either an updated MacOS on it (10.5), or just going straight to a PPC linux distro. There are no drivers on ATI's site for that card that I can see, the legacy drivers are only windows, and the linux drivers listed don't seem to include this thing. https://bbs.archlinux.org/viewtopic.php?id=158540

Move your ass, do it yourself and stop whining. I had the same problem with Fedora Core 1 when I first tried that, which was cleared right up by installing proper drivers for the card, so I am assuming that These can become the most loyal open source users, the ones that people forget about. https://forums.linuxmint.com/viewtopic.php?t=175671 Join our community today!
Will not respond to PM requests for support -- use the forums. All my xorg.conf has is this; Section "Device" Identifier "Configured Video Device" EndSection Section "Monitor" Identifier "Configured Monitor" EndSection Section "Screen" Identifier "Default Screen" Monitor "Configured Monitor" Device "Configured Video Device" I think the key was identifying my monitor capabilities, because the Xorg detection identified the video adapter, the Mach64 driver just fine.
