For information about Custom Edition of Kaffe, contact Transvirtual
maybe at info at

For Desktop Edition (aka GPL Kaffe) you should rewrite some classes of
java.awt and navite methods for framebuffer.  Currently, Kaffe Desktop
Edition support X11 and win32.  You could find these classes under
libraries/javalib/awt and libraries/clib/native/awt/X for X11 port and
libraries/javalib/awt/win32 and libraries/clib/native/awt/win32 for
win32 port.

Hope this help.
