looking at DFB's supported-hardware page


Well, ...

I did some try with my xgi card, and even though i disabled hardware
acceleration, this is a nogo. I ended up in a messed up text terminal (with
black blocks and â chars for the box borders and shadow).

So, it is clear that directfb needs not only the per-card drivers for
acceleration, but also for normal usage.

You're talking about per-card framebuffer devices, not per-card DFB gfxdrivers, right? On i386 the vesafb device can be used in place of card-specific fb devices and DFB will run unaccelerated on top of it.
Does a device driver equivalent to vesafb exists for PPCs?

That said, i couldn't find any kind of directfb log or something, so maybe the
above guess was bad, and something else funny happened, since that was with a
2.6.18 kernel.

Usually DFB produces some debug output on VT1, can you get any info there?
