    Hey, I'm wondering if anyone's got Debian running on a PB 1.67GHz? I've got it running but the video's in fallback mode. I also can't get node.js to compile. I've read that people have been successful in doing so. Java also seems to be an issue. I can't get it to launch Minecraft. I understand that it will be a slow but there are texture packs to speed things up.

    What Debian install are you running, have added non-free repositories to your sources.list file? Have you installed the ATI driver? Have you installed Mesa-utils? Are you getting 3d hardware acceleration? Your PowerBook has an ATI card so it should work nicely with Debian. I've never tried to run minecraft so can't help you there.

    I've installed the drivers and Mesa-util. I'm using Debian 7.6.

    Run

    Code:
    glxinfo | grep render
    What does it say?
