You have write acess as a debian maintainer. But i think it is a good

How will you seperate it: make 'normal' , make graphical ?
Maybe. Does anyone have a suggestion on this point?
Your bogl isn't arch/fbdev clean. Please look at this:
gcc -c -g -O3 -Wall -W -DBOGL_VGA16_FB bogl.c -o bogl.o
bogl.c:58: warning: type defaults to `int' in declaration of `visible'
bogl.c: In function `bogl_init':
bogl.c:130: `FB_TYPE_VGA_PLANES' undeclared (first use in this function)
bogl.c:130: (Each undeclared identifier is reported only once
bogl.c:130: for each function it appears in.)
bogl.c: In function `draw_enable':
bogl.c:313: `FB_TYPE_VGA_PLANES' undeclared (first use in this function)
make: *** [bogl.o] Error 1
Btw: look at the CFLAGS line; -Werror is not a good choice.
It does make it easier to find and fix all warnings, but I'll take it
out for the boot-floppies CVS; remind me if I forget.
To explain it a little bit:
I have not patched the kernel with your VGA16 diff. It must!! be possible
to use the fb-devices in the kernel or as modules, that are available.
So please seperate it and use only the kernel headers for the
Shouldn't be a problem, it's only the one new #define that I added to
the kernel headers. The vga16fb is destined to be merged upstream
I'm thinking about writing a cfb8 BOGL driver later today. It'll be a
relaxing break from the hellish chaos of my EE410 homework.
