    GATOS drivers work fine for me (G3 with a Rage LT Pro), you should give
    them a try.
As told 5 minutes ago ;) I have cancelled compiling gatos. Do not now
what to compiled. I lost the overview. Don't want to kill my system
again. But did you self-compile or was you using a distro containing
gatos. I myself using the Mandrake 8.2/PPC distro.
    Offtopic PS: Stephan Haller from MacSOUP ? Congrats for this great soft I
    used when I ran MacOS, so sad it isn't opensource ;)

No, sorry. But long time ago before changing to linux I was amused that
someone writing mac apps has my name ;)
