The only way PDP would use accelerated graphics is if you used the 
[pdp_glx] window. Otherwise, it all gets rendered in the CPU anyway. 
Accelerated graphics only gets used in PD by GEM/OpenGL, AFAIK. Put a 
sock in my mouth if this in untrue ;-)

My suggestion is with Frank. Start with Ubuntu, then add some new Debian 
sources to /etc/apt/sources.list like:

deb http://snapshot.debian.net/archive/2005/11/11/debian/ testing main 
contrib non-free

deb http://sindominio.net/~caedes/debian/ unstable main
deb ftp://ftp.nerim.net/debian-marillat/ unstable main


apt-get update

apt-get install pd-pdp pd-pidip pd-gem2pdp pd-unauthorized gem

And see if that helps.
