I strongly doubt that. Maybe some old version of powerpc-utils conflicts
with recent pmud. That's because I moved some stuff between the two
packages. Just update.

The rivafb kernel support varies somewhat. Depending on the precise model,

to keep rivafb patches on the net, so you may want to google around. Sleep
support with rivafb I doubt somewhat. Suspend to disk might work though.
