This is a kernel driver for Permedia 2 and 2V graphics controllers. It was written specifically for the Sun [[PGX32]] card on [[sparc]] and [[sparc64]], it hasn't been tested on any other hardware as far as I know. It does support basic acceleration ( scrolling and rectangle fills ) but characters are still drawn by software and there is no support for setting video modes, the driver depends on device properties to tell it what video mode the firmware set up. This should work on other OpenFirmware platforms which have code in place to translate OF properties into device properties - namely [[macppc]] - but this is untested and I don't know if there are any Permedia 2 based graphics cards for Power Macintoshes anyway.
