Its running already... no problem. When will the new source be out? I am
kind of "away", today is officially my last day at the university...

No, right, installed mesa (from that build) and everything was fine.

Not sure, there might be, maybe some macs? There is supposed to be some new
add-on hardware for Amigas which give you PCI slots, but I think none of the
"mainstream" m68k machines have PCI.

I moved away that module, guess what happens? X crashed, because it does not
find that module... so it seems pci must be fixed for m68k.

For the debian-68k people, I've put the debs on:
maybe somebody has more luck running these, maybe they are a starting point
for further patches to X for somebody. (note: you will need some packages
from woody/binary-all to get these installed, you will find out which. It
should work on a potato box, thats what I used for compiling/testing).
