...it seems you can't do anything right.

An hour ago, I had an Ultra30 with an Elite3D as /dev/fb0 and a
Creator3D as /dev/fb1.  Then I tried to switch them, because the ffb can
properly drive the 90D10 I'm sitting in front of right now and the afb
can't, and if I made the ffb /dev/fb0 I could connect it to the 90D10's
13W3 input.

Somewhere during the process, it appears I somehow managed to kill both

I don't know whether I zapped them while swapping them, or forgot to
unplug the power cable after powering off the machine or what ....   but
OpenBoot now reports no screen found.


it's things like this that can make you consider taking up a new career
sweeping floors.
