Awesome!  With a 2.2 or 2.3 kernel?  (Funny thing, the fan seems to run a lot faster
with this 2.3 kernel...)

Right, that has to be added to X.

Indeed!  How much time are you willing to put into this?  I'm sending mail to the
fbdev list about adding accel to Xfb, and ccing you.  It seems it should be
relatively straightforward, a bunch of accel hooks are right there in

If nobody else does it, I may get around to it in a couple of months... by which
time XFree4 will obsolete it all!
