X doesn't start with r128 driver (ATI RAGE) [powerpc]

launching Xorg fails with the r128 driver.
It seems that newer versions of the r128 xorg driver need to allocate more memory than the video card actually have (in my case, on a Powerbook G3 Pismo, an ATI RAGE with 8MB).
Setting 'Option "NoAccel" "True"' in xorg.conf did not helped.
Reducing the color depth 'DefaultDepth 16' kind of helped. The X server starts but it only displays garbage (last video buffer from the tty slowly becoming white).
