    AFAIK it should be possible to get it to work on non-x86. One would
    have to implement the IO functions for x86emu and mmap the Video BIOS,
    both of which should be relatively easy tasks. I don't however have
    direct access to hardware other than x86(_64) and thus haven't had a
    chance to write such code and test it.

    Best regards,
    Michal
