Re: Kicad support for Linux on PPC


Ok, thanks for the clarification. In my system the video card it is a
VGABIOS Flashed Card (so no PPC flashed one).
In my case if an Intel Video Card should exists I can test it. VGABios
apart, there no need for special PPC/MIPS/Whatever video card because
OpenFirmware does not initialize the videocard (it can't due to non-FCode
firmware installed) but Linux does not care about it.
