Subject: Re: [Linux-fbdev-devel] [PATCH] fb: hide cursor in graphics mode

I can confirm that the problem exists on x86 (Pentium III) platform,
too, with atyfb (3D RAGE IIC (Mach64 GZ, AGP) [0x475a rev 0x3a]),
kernel 2.6.26, and Xfbdev

An interesting difference:

# setterm -cursor off > /dev/tty7

works on x86, but the opposite:

# setterm -cursor on > /dev/tty7

does not work on Mac (with my patch, so the cursor is off).

The setups, in my tests, on x86 and Mac, are not analogous. On x86,
atyfb is as a module, on Mac, it's linked in. On x86, I used fbset to
select the mode, on Mac, kernel command line has the mode selection.
But all this hardly matters...
