    Hello out there

    Yerstoday I have tried to use the new FB console code with the above
    mentioned graphics card. There results where as follows:

    1. Selectiong the vesa mode 0318 upon boot works fine. The pinguin logo
    shows nicely and I have a 1000x1000 character console.

    2. Selecting iso8859-2 as console font seems to work too.

    3. For whichever reason the keyboard setup code for polish programmers
    fails. For example Alt-l doesn't give me anylonger l/ (l-stroke) but
    instead the turkish t, (t-ogonek)! Supposedly this is a damn unicode

    4. startx results in a black screen of death. No console switching. So
    Ctrl-Alt-Backspace rescue. No blind command input. However
    Ctrl-Alt-Delete still seems to work.

    Oh and yes I was attempting to use the X86_SVGA server with this setup...

    What to do about it?
