Well, a low priority one, but it is. Please post the full lines, otherwise I
wouldn't know where in the code to look.

Seems to be a driver problem.  As you have the hardware, you will need to
debug this ;)  Try updating the driver in GNU Mach to some later version
(2.0.latest, or even 2.2.something, or backport obvious fixes).

Not that I know of.  Please, if you think there is a problem, always include
all the information that is associated with it. Don't make a judgement if
some information is important or not, as you can't make this decision if you
can't solve the prolbem yourself in the first place.

Otherwise we are not making an inch progress, we have just exchanged empty

Again, you are not telling me anything that would help me understanding what
happened, not to speak of what the problem is.  I have not seen what was
thrown on the console, and this is one of the most important information you
must provide if you expect us to be able to say anything useful.

If you have set LC_ALL or LANG, you need to enable it in /etc/locale.gen and
run "locale-gen".
