Date: 6 May 92 20:55:58 GMT

I'm probably going to write a free 8514/S3 driver for X this summer, and I'd
be interested in hearing from anyone else who's working on the same thing,
so we can avoid duplicated effort.

Actually I did such a beast - but it's only commercial work. I would not
recommend you doing this thing, unless you are really good at X. It took
me quite while to make it stable and fast. A starting point could be the
X11R4 IBM 8514/A server. But then again this guy is so buggy that it makes
sence to start from scratch (read I tried this and gave up).
