Nvidia driver on a powerpc under Ubuntu

Hi all,

I'm having trouble viewing videos in fullscreen with mplayer because of glx being disabled.
One workaround would be to use mplayer -vo sdl -fs <filename>, but that's not convenient for me as I prefer GUIs over command line.
Now, this is my first iMac machine with a Geforce4 440, and would really like to get linux up and running.
Nvidia doesn't apparently support powerpc architecture.
Moreover, the following in Ubuntu's wiki says to install nvidia-glx, which is again not available for the PPC. I hate the idea of reverting to OSX, 'cause of a single issue. Anybody?

Thanks in advance.
