	Oh, sure. Via "dpkg-reconfigure -plow console-data" things are
	quite simple.

	To be honest, I don't know. :-) But I can exchage this card
	for a Mach64 card, which apparently does. Is there any
	possibility of having XVideo with Mach64 cards?

	It seems that the current 4.2.0 packages that Branden is
	generating doesn't include XV at least for the Mach64 on x86
	(tested with a very old notebook with this a Mach64).

	If, on the other hand, I use the binary drivers from the gatos
	project (which are available for x86 only), I can get XV
	working (and play movies with xine and mplayer that weren't
	playable before).

	It would be nice to have Mach64 with XV included in upstream
	XF86, if there aren't any problems with it. :-) If that is the
	case, then I would get the Mach64 to substitute the current
	IMSTT card on this old PowerMac...

	Thanks, Roger...
