    Nouveau serves a purpose, but I guess 3D aint one of them.

      I already have, the bug report has been up for a few years now:

        Well, supposedly. I think if you actually try and use it you run into all sorts of bugs due to the endianness issues, and Intel doesn't even try and handle any of that in their driver. I saw someone was recently trying to fix some of the r600g issues on power5, not sure how far along they got.
