last i heard that was the case.  has this changed at all Ragge?  i think you
were the only one to ever offer to work on it, but you lack on to work on?  i
can give you console access to mine, but i won't be shipping it across the
pond to you. ;)

also, what are the chances that the framebuffer in it would ever get a device
driver written for it that takes advantage of the acceleration?  the 35x0 is
a rather cruddy design who's only saving grace is the accelerated 24-bit
capable framebuffer.

Whoops, nevermind...  the compile just imploded, crashing the xterm it was
running in as well...  Thanks, Richard...              -- George Adkins --
