Oh, yes. Nice :-) for i in atarimouse, amiga....

You will 'dump' /dev/fb0 and look at the output?? cat /dev/fb0 > <file> is
the easy part; for displaing Gimp can do this, what i've heard!?
When will you check in bogl to the boot-floppies cvs?
Oh, it shouldn't make a difference between any framebuffers on any arch, if
you use the kernel header files for this.
BTW: Geert Uytterhoeven <Geert.Uytterhoeven@cs.kuleuven.ac.be> will help, if
