If you're sure, just comment out  lines 115-121 of libvo/vo_tdfxfb.c. If you
could add a printf("accel: %d\n", fb_finfo.accel); just before it and send the
output of that to me i can add it to the cvs driver so it wont complain.

driver doesn't need any of that X crap works straight from the console to the
vid card memory which is why its the fastest there is.

for use as a normal user i guess you need to chmod 666 /dev/fb0 or so.
