Just grab it from testing, should not hurt? I did this on my Amiga and it
loaded at least a part of the network driver.

If it hangs, I guess it matters. But since most of the other framebuffers
are "officially" broken, maybe it does not matter as much. Is anybody
working on this, what does it take to fix? Also the SCSI problem, as I said,
this probably makes vme useless.

I just edited all config files to not offer broken drivers at all (the
option is CONFIG_CLEAN_COMPILE I guess). I am trying to make the config
between all subarches as similar as possible. While going through this, I
noted a new(?) windows netfilesystem option, CONFIG_CIFS. Seems to be for
newer windozes only. Does anybody need this or should I leave it out? BTW I
did activate XFS now.
