Thanks for the warning :-) Incidentally what's the significance of the

Option          "UseFBDev"              "true"

(or where do I find the appropriate FM) and should I have one in the case of this device?

I've got brief mention in /sys (a directory /sys/bus/of/drivers/leo)- allowing that I can't see a startup message in dmesg does this imply anything about the loaded state of the kernel driver?

I can't find anything relevant in /proc/openprom- in case I'm missing something obvious where exactly should I be looking?

I'm working on sorting out a failing disc on this system but am having to interleave with "real" work etc.- if I go quiet it's not because I'm not interested in sorting this out.
