On using the imstt driver on a 9600 (was: Re: X on a 9600 artifacts and AltGr on Keyboard mapped to where?)

I don't know, as I mostly use X and use xmodmap for this

I think that I know the solution to this one. I had problems
getting the imstt driver working until I literally specified
the PCI BusID option of the card. You can get this information
from lspci (be warned that lspci gives the id in hex and the
XF86Config-4 needs it in decimal).
I also needed to use a 2.4 kernel for lspci to see all the PCI
devices of this box (with a 2.2 kernel, lspci didn't know
about the video card).
Then, I hope you'll be able to use the imstt driver instead of
fbdev, which is slower.
Unfortunately, it seems that imstt doesn't currently implement
the XVideo extension. Michel, if you're reading this, is there
any possibility of having XVideo implemented for the imstt?
Hope this helps, Roger...
