So the driver didn't like your graphics chip for some reason

This is the relevant part:
> (II) PCI: 00:10:0: chip 1002,4c4e card 0000,0000 rev 64 class 03,00,00
> (--) PCI:*(0:16:0) ATI Technologies Inc Rage Mobility L AGP 2x rev

... this makes your graphics chip a 'Rage LN' which is supported by the
atimisc driver. Usually the ati driver does The Right Thing and loads
the correct submodule ( atimisc for Mach64-like chips, r128 for Rage128
or radeon for various Radeons ) but I don't see a line in your log that
indicates anything like this.=20
So, changing the Driver entry in your 'Device' section to atimisc may
help. Then it may be a good idea to add a line like this too:
	BusID "PCI:0:10:0"
Your log says=20
(II) Primary Device is: PCI 00:10:0
(--) Assigning device section with no busID to primary device
no idea what section that would be, so better tell it which one to use
with the BusID line. Some configuration tools for XFree86 like to add a
section for a dumb vga device which isn't going to work on macppc. If
that's the case I'd recommend to delete all unused 'Device' sections and
to keep only the one for your graphics chip.

good luck
