Jeff, Thanks for the info (its good to know I'm not alone) and at least I now have a backup plan if Xvfb cannot be fixed easily. If I get stuck trying to configure vncserver, could I contact you directly? That said, it would be better if Xvfb worked without crashing. Who looks after the vfb

3D support for radeon 9600 pro (ppc)

I know there is already 2D support for the radeon 9600 pro in the upcoming 4.4 release. My question is if I buy an Apple Powermac G5 with a radeon 9600 pro card will I eventually in the future be able to get 3D support on the powerpc platform (not x86!!) ?
