Ah, there is it. Up to now I don't select "Prompt for development and/or
incomplete code/drivers". I think this driver _is_ experimental. For
example scrolling in the console is much slower compared with the offb
driver and what is really annoying is that I can't use atyfb on my
PowerBook G3 (Wallstreet) if I boot it with Open Firmware.
