I haven't dug into the precise reasons, but I had similar problems on
x86 Slackware.   As you know, Slackware is mostly x86, so when I got a
ppc laptop, I ended up installing gentoo.  The same setup which had not
worked under slackware mysteriously began to work.  As I said, I
haven't dug around too much to pinpoint exactly why, but I'm assuming
that gentoo has something configured properly by default and ubuntu and
slackware require some extra tinkering.  Exactly where I don't know.
Believe it or not, this is the main reason I still use gentoo instead
of Slackintosh.
