thank you a lot. I just compiled the CVS HEAD togetehr with the git
master branch and it works like a charm. I first run Xorg -configure
which shoot my vesa bios (a friend could still log in via remote and I
was able to sysrq the machine). But after a hard-reset (reboot wasn't
enough) I specified the right driver directly and it works including
xrandr, xv and it feels fast (ls -al output in a big xterm, opera
scrolling and so on). Thank you a lot.  Now I have a real nice
workstation with linux/xorg on my mac mini.  Btw. when the modsetting
branch is ready for testing I would like to test it. It would be nice if
someone could give me a heads-up when it is ready to try.

Thanks again,
