Please note that the current state is that it creates a file named "gallium.bof" in the working directory containing the instructions it should send to the gpu, but doesn't becouse they would cause the graphics card to hard lock.

And when I say hard lock, I really do mean hard lock. A reboot of the system ("shutdown -r now") isn't enough. To get a working display you have to shut down ("shutdown -h now"), then pull out the power cord, wait half a second for all capacitors to run dry, put the cord back in and restart...
