Yup. Works beautifully. For about three months, I was using GNOME, E,

Netwinder totally dead. I'll have to reinstall at some point, or figure
out how to unpack and install the libc6 deb from the RedHat side...
Can I use the XFree86 v4.1.0 inclued in Debian Woody on the Netwinder?
But it works great, just use the fbdev driver and you're all set.
Oh- one other thing: I could never get it to use 16-bit color depth, but
that's a kernel framebuffer issue, not an X issue.
