DEC alpha axp? big bad 64 bit things that still beat up itaniums? I
have several. Though the binary built.. no video drivers built. I have a
fairly heavy duty GL card in one (diamond fireGL 3000 pro), console
likes it, X doesn't (thanks debian), but i should be able to run it
ref_soft or ref_glx if i had the drivers..
