I actually commented the change in my xorg.conf file :-). If "NoInt10"
isn't "true", there's a probe for the video BIOS which fails on the
Alpha (or at least, that *used* to be the case). Since I can't access
the video BIOS, I have to use the default connector table too. Are you
claiming that the current X server on Alpha can now do something useful
with a x86 video BIOS? If that's true, I *am* impressed.
