Great, Arnd. I was looking for the files on alioth and I don't see
them in the files section or CVS on the old debian-amd64 or the newer
x86-64 project. Would you give me a pointer to them?

That'll be great. I tested the 4.3.0 experimental i386 packages and
they worked okay, but they didn't appear to support 3-d acceleration
on my radeon 9800 card. I also tried compiling nvidia's amd64 3-d
kernel module, but it doesn't support kernel 2.6. What card are you
using with 3-d accelerated?

Thanks again for your work.
