Ops sorry i forgot to give more info, i got the source rpms from
ftp://atrey.karlin.mff.cuni.cz/pub/local/miri/ggi/2.0b2/ (link from the

the parts that don't built (vgagl needs glide) in the %files section of the
My kernel was around 2.2.4/5 at that time, latest version of egcs (1.1.2),
display is atyfb (Mach64 GX).
PS> I plan to write some ggi apps some time next week so i'll take a closer
