As far as I understood, Mesa-solo required the linux framebuffer, which
I don't have. I seriously don't want to be the one to start work on the
mode-setting library. As far as pbuffers, once we've got the glue
necessray I'll fix up the SiS driver for it, which should be quick. But
all of this will take time to be done, and they aren't areas I've
already worked in. Render, now, I should be able to fix this patch up
in another day or maybe two, and make myself and normal users happy in
the short term.
