I've used it and it works fine, although the "Netscape" bug is still present.
Also, it's not fully accelerated and depends on much of the dumb framebuffer
code (at the moment). But, it should run on either EV4 or EV5 CPU machines.

Watch this space, as I've got patches that *do* fix the "Netscape" bug,
which will be used to build a new TGA server, along with Mach64 and
Millenium servers (which also exhibit that bug).
