Indeed, glint driver doesn't work with UseFBDev.

Could this be a chipset issue (3DLabs vs TI) ? Mine is a Texas
Instrument (aka ti_pm2) :

00:0d.0 Display controller: Texas Instruments TVP4020 [Permedia 2] (rev 01)
        Subsystem: Texas Instruments TVP4020 [Permedia 2]
        Control: I/O- Mem+ BusMaster+ SpecCycle- MemWINV- VGASnoop- ParErr- Stepping- SERR- FastB2B-
        Status: Cap- 66Mhz- UDF- FastB2B+ ParErr- DEVSEL=medium >TAbort- <TAbort- <MAbort- >SERR- <PERR-
        Latency: 32 (48000ns min, 48000ns max)
        Interrupt: pin A routed to IRQ 23
        Region 0: Memory at 80840000 (32-bit, non-prefetchable) [size=128K]
        Region 1: Memory at 81000000 (32-bit, non-prefetchable) [size=8M]
        Region 2: Memory at 90000000 (32-bit, non-prefetchable) [size=8M]
        Expansion ROM at 80800000 [disabled] [size=64K]

Any idea ?

Places change, faces change. Life is so very strange.
