It is intentionally disabled due to it not properly functioning on powerpc .
If you have managed to use it and got it to work, that is news to me; that
being said I think it would be too late this cycle to enable it.

I just read the annoucement that nouveau is now part of the main
kernel package, which sounds great but it doesn't seem to be the case
on PPC. Is it blacklisted, blocked in some way or did I just not look
well enough ?
BTW, I don't see this change in linux-image's changelog.Debian file.

I can install the nouveau xorg driver and X works but the resolution
seems to be something like 800x600 and the colors are broken, is it
due to the lack of kernel driver ?

I'd be glad to test on PPC, but understand that this arch is far from
a priority...

Best regards.
