Re: [PATCH] Voodoo framebuffer on PARISC

Hi Douglas,

it's safe to enable both (stifb and sstfb), in which case one of
them is /dev/fb0 (presumably the sstfb) and the other /dev/fb1 (stifb).
If you hook them up to different monitors you can use both graphic
cards at the same time. If you connect them in chain, only the
sstfb will be visible.
