Hacked up one of he LCD panels fully off an old VGA card - working quite nicely; although the inverter circuit we cobbled together is a bit touchy. (Anyone with ideas for a nice, safe, stable, cheap inverter for cold cathode backlights please tell me!).

A kludge with SVGAtextmode gave me something almost right - although I face the option of loosing about 2 pixels off either edge (I can choose, but I always loose a couple of pixels...).

Fighting Linux/ARM on the old platforms; these machines have unreasonably large 32K pages (and not many of them) - there are some very odd things happening in some places. (Like a divide by 0 I got last week in fork_init).
