What work is currently going on that might provide (kernel and)
XFree86 support for the new generation of video cards, cards that
support digital displays? I'm hoping to get a 3dfx voodoo4 (the
voodoo5 seems like overkill) or perhaps an ATI radeon, if they ever
come out with the PCI version, for my B&W G3. I have a nice digital
display that's going to waste as far as linux/PPC is concerned....
I can't find anything in the XF4.0.1 sources that goes beyond the
voodoo3 (or that recognizes the radeon at all), but those sources are
already kind of old by now. Is there hope that cards supporting the
new generation of displays will get linux/PPC support?
