things seem to work so far - there are a few things in MesaLib's DRI

try it on this G4 though since the r128 driver isn't built yet ( I'll
give it a shot on my other boxes later on ). Anyway, Xorg -configure
produced a mostly sane xorg.conf.

i'l check out r128.


- why do we build the vesa driver on macppc? It makes no sense on non-

no sense at all. if you find any that don't make sense for a platform
you're working on nobody will complain if you .if ${MACHINE} them out
of the build.

Ok, I'll shrink that list. There are a few others that have practically no chance to show up in a mac ( or non-PC for that matter ). What we really need is just all ati, nvidia, matrox, chips & technologies, tdfx on macppc and ati, all the sun stuff and permedia2 on sparc64. Plus wsfb on both. Although, maybe we should build the matrox driver on sparc64 as well - xfree86's mga driver was able to use a cold Millennium II on sparc64 with some hacking ( mainly PCI access stuff, no x86 emulation involved here )

have fun
