Hi guys,

I have been told that you can only use *text* only modes with this card.
:o( Currently, graphic modes with vesafb won't work.

There may be plans to implement permediafb (a la matroxfb), who knows? The
specs for the card is available on Texas Instruments' website. Go grab
them before TI wakes up and removes them. Quickly.
