Re: questions about toshiba tecra 8100

To get the framebuffer server, go to xfree86.org and download
the server (FBdev). Then put that server into your
/usr/X11R6/bin directory. Next you'll
need to move your X symlink to that server.
There is no frame buffer option is xf86config.
If you are using a Tecra 8100, Tim Roberts has
just updated his SVGA server to support the
savage/mx card.
