Re: [Adam Di Carlo <adam@onshore.com>] Re: framebuffer

I heard recently that Hatta Shuzo <hattas@debian.or.jp> is working
on this framebuffer support in boot-floppies . He is one of long-waiting 
applicant for Debian member, but his carrer in developing package at 
Debian JP is much longer than me, and he is one of members who worked on 
boot-floppies-ja (customized boot-floppies for japanese) and bootable CD-ROM
for (at least) hamm-jp and slink-jp. So I think he can do something for 
Debian's boot-floppies.

Now he seems to get success to make root disk which has fb support using
jfbterm + jiskan16.pcf.gz. Maybe soon he will get success to read Japanese
messages using his floppies.

He wrote that he has concerned very much if the official kernel with 
vga16fb-support are provided, on debian-devel@JP list.

I hope that he can work with official boot-flopies team in debian-boot list,
in order to enable the support of fbdev.
