I think porting wscons should be the way to go. We will need to teach it
to understand interleaved pixel layout to support the native resolutions.
Unaccelerated drivers for add-on cards should be easy with wscons though.
Accelerated drivers depend on support in X for the chipset.
So, really all NetBSD ports should be building a wsfb
driver, even when accelerated drivers are available for
all supported hardware it can be a useful fallback for
Currently that appears to involve building in the XFree86
servers, including netbsdPci.c, to get modules/drivers/wsfb_drv.so?
Is that the way forward for other prts, or are we back to building
port specific servers which happen to support wscons?
