DGA applications not working

HI !

I'm having a problem with the XFBDev server that comes bundled with
linuxppc R5, and I really don't know what's going on and how I can fix
that. Basically, when I try to use a DGA-based application, I get an
error message in the console saying:

"XF86DGAGetVideo: failed to mmap /dev/kmem (Device not configured)"

I'm using a 2.2.10 kernel with controlfb.

If someone what to test this, a DGA application that fails is Basilic II
(Mac 68k emulator) that can be found at <http://www.uni-mainz.de/~bauec002/>

Any clues ?
