Winter is long gone, this snowboard powder bum is depressed.
I just int10 booted the x86 bios on a r128 PCI graphics
card on my Sparc SunBlade-100. Life is... ummm... good?
cleaning up these xf86-4.1.x mods and trying out tdfx
and other cards tomorrow. Maybe I'll even get r128 DRI
working on this box, which would be nice. Gareth Hughes
promised he would help.
What does this mean? Well basically I can now multi-head
Creator3D/Elite3D UPA boards, mach64 ATI cards with Sun
firmware, and off the shelf PCI graphics cards with x86
bios on them.
I think I'll setup some scary Xinerama 6 head configuration
using the endless supply of monitors I have here, just to
scare the wife when she gets home :-)
In other news, linux-kernel thinks I'm a communist, I've
become a gonzo journalism addict, and I've joined the
playboy cyber club.
I've driven my pathfinder roughly 1,000 miles since my most
recent powder day in the Sierras. I'm so pathetic, I know...
