I've always battled with Linux and X-Server displays. Don't get me wrong, Linux is a great development OS, but when it just doesn't work after spending days on a project, I sometimes wonder if it's worth the hassle. The sweet thing to such a big accomplishment is the fact that you've done it and have learned from the experience. I've spend days researching and gathering little bits of information and now feel that everyone deserves an easy ONE stop place to learn everything you may need to know on how to setup the Banshee under Linux, or for that matter any VESA 2.0 complient video card as a frame buffer device. This quick howto trys to make sense out of the many available documents on the web about frame buffer devices. I do referrence the original documents whenever possible.
This solution is hopefully a temporary one until a fully functional XFree86 X-Server can be implemented. Thanks to Daryll Strauss and all his work and time he has devoted to the Linux community. He has been able to implement 3Dfx Glide support for the Voodoo Graphics, Voodoo2, and Voodoo Rush chipsets. He is presently working on Banshee drivers. Good luck Daryll.
