Right now I am trying to build a Xserver for a S3 Virge that I have on
this box. I am quite in the same situation as you :) as this card work
with the X server from Debian GNU/Linux and I'd like to make it work on
NetBSD. I m tryig floolowing this :
For the Linux emulation, I don't think it will work, I guess it is too
low level which stuff like probing the PCI bus when X starts.
If you can get anything working, report it !
