Hi there,

Update on the IBM X31 issue. I have a solution to the problems I was
seeing, might not cut it for everyone with an X31, but should get you
far enough.

Right, the answer to the IDE DMA problem is to grab kernel 2.4.21-rc1.
There is a fix in there that allows you to switch on the DMA. Makes a
HUGE diffrence.

Problem number two was the Radeon graphics card. The solution was
mentioned in passing by Linus Torvalds on the LKML. The answer (oh so
simple) is to put
Option "AGPMode" "1"
in the gfx card section in XF86Config. Problem solved.

Been using the X31 to send this message even. :)
