  x This is the frame buffer device driver for the Permedia2 AGP frame
  x buffer card from ASK, aka raphic Blaster Exxtreme'.  There is a
  x product page at
  x <http://www.ask.com.hk/product/Permedia%202/permedia2.htm>.

And the product page is probably a 404 page... I have never heard of this
card, are you sure it works in an m68k amiga (and not in apus)?

When I activate it, I get:
  x Say Y to enable support for the Amiga Phase 5 CVisionPPC BVisionPPC
  x framebuffer cards.  Phase 5 is no longer with us, alas.     

I guess that is the one you want? If it builds, it should be ready tomorrow
morning (8-10h from, depends a bit on the buildd running in parallel).

BTW I guess I should ask 2.4.25 to be removed soon, since 2.4.26 is already
in testing and the last test installation I did on atari used the 2.4.26
kernel. So I assume you want 2.4.26 as well and not 2.4.25?
