    Unhappy graphical issues

    Hi everyone, I've installed 11.04 on my Powerbook G4, and so far I like it.

    However, I'm unable to get hardware acceleration to work at this point.

    Also, I see graphics distortion in certain windows from time to time until that window is updated by scrolling or some other change. I've attached a screenshot of a distorted window.

    Here is some trimmed output of the Xorg.0.log:
    Code:
    $ cat /var/log/Xorg.0.log | grep -B 10 -E 'EE|AIGLX'
    ...

    For comparison, here is some output from my Debian Squeeze installation:

    Any clues?

    Thanks!
