I have an Aluminum PowerBook G4 running Gentoo (kernel 3.8.13-gentoo). It refuses to start x.org.

The full output of Xorg's logfile, as well as emerge --info, are here. In essence, what happens is the X server appears to load the driver correctly, then refuses to proceed and states that no screens are found.

lspci -vk is here; and zcat /proc/config.gz is here. (If I missed something, let me know and I'll add it in.)

IIRC, on ppc an entry in xorg.conf is required with BusID, as it's not detected correctly on the platform.
There was a thread about it recently.

Ah, I see. I'll try it when I get back from my trip.

X -configure segfaults, which is the subject of another open bug.
