The last package I had installed was, IINM,
xserver-xorg-video-ati_6.7.196-1, and I didn't have problems with it,
other than those already described on debian-powerpc at

It worked fine for cloning the alubook screen to a VGA - I just
thought maybe this black-and-white-only-on-my-TV issue got fixed .. :)

And yes, I often eat my favorite software as fresh as possible ... :)

And if we're already at it: 

Thanks to the developers of this software.

I clone an alubook screen to a VGA on a nearly daily basis: I just
added a few commands to the KDE menu, to switch the LCD/VGA screens
on/off: seems to work like a charm ...

Thanks a lot
