Break out the compiler and binutils, install the xorg X server source, and
start coding a driver for a framebuffer device using interleaved bit
planes (or rather, interleaved pixels) for Atari. Consult the 2.6 kernel
Atari framebuffer device to see how bits for the different color
components of one pixel are mapped to the corresponding interleaved bytes.

The only thing that might still work is monochrome mode (atafb=sthigh
f.e.). If you still get a sigsegv on that mode, use gdb to figure out
precisely where it fails.

And no, I'm not kidding.
