Excellent to hear someone is tinkering! I haven't had time yet to push
openvsa any further along. Patches are most welcome.

AFAIK, no one has used it successfully.
Marc at AMD reported problems when he tried it early on, when the
repository was first seeded. We committed a few patches related to
build environment and licensing, but that's it -- no patches on getting
the code itself fixed up.
Have you got a Geode platform with the FS2 debugger? It would be great
to get some folks with the time and gear on openvsa.
