Hey Michel, You're wonderful!!!

I'm writing this email to you off my ViewSonic21 running at measly
1280x1024 but it's much better than the 1024x768 I got using

I rebuilt r128_driver.c with the CRTOnly code commented in, added:

Option "CRTOnly" 

to my XF86Config, and took out:

Option "ProgramFPRegs" "No"

(that last one caused me quite some grief till I read the code and
realized it wasn't running the CRTOnly check unless registers were

And it works!!!!

I'm happy to provide my recompiled r128_drv.o to pismo folks. Perhaps
Michel can put it on his WWW site?
