Hi Michel Dänzer thanks for your explanation about .
About the first post


Christian (Xeno74) had been success to have the right mesa/gl colors on
X1000 machine he make a patch about , i tested his package on QuadG5
but no effect probably something is different in kernel/hardware (?!?)

about the second
on X1000 r600 boards dont gave decoration problems
there is probably needed some other trick about
for the other architecture.


In any way thanks alot for the infos and for the works
the PPC linux staff is doing :)
