Hi Christopher,

The good news.
I was just able to push a patch into the OpenChrome repository.


I took a lot of figuring out to get to the first patch I was able to push into
the repository (I have never done open source software development. I am an
unemployed Silicon Valley digital hardware design engineer, so I do not
specialize in Linux graphics device driver development.).
I am now in the driver's seat (no pun intended), and finally, it is nice to be
in the driver's seat for the first time (again, no pun intended).
I will personally celebrate today (a big deal for me) on my own.
    What this means is that, in the future, you will be able to obtain updated
source code quickly without having to apply so many patches like where you are
While I will not be able to promise that the future OpenChrome Version 0.3.4
will fix your bug, at some point, newer version of PuppyLinux should have the
newer OpenChrome code.
I am hoping that future OpenChrome Version 0.3.5 will fix your bug, and
hopefully PuppyLinux developers will take the updated code.
