Triple Dragon, anyone?

After a kind guy donated me a Triple Dragon satellite STB (running Linux, of course), i started hacking on it. Unfortunately, the source code to the original Application is not available, but i'm not too happy with that one anyway. With the help of another Tuxbox-pioneer, Carsten "Carjay" Juttner, i now have the enigma GUI basically running on the machine. I do have some problems with the graphics device and the framebuffer (especially the interaction between both), so if you have information or can share your programming experience on IBM STB04xxx boxes or even on the Triple Dragon hardware / API, i would be most grateful for any hints.
I want to solve those problems before moving on and porting neutrino to that beast ;-)

Suspend to disk with low memory machines

Now this is an interesting bug report :-)

Executive summary: if your machine has less than 128MB of RAM, then please turn off the splash screen in /etc/suspend.conf
