Re: atafb and X/fbdev
Have you tried the VGA modes (vga256 for instance)? That might boil down to
interleaved planes in the end though.
Yes, vgs256 was interleaved too. From my limited understanding of
atafb.c all modes are interleaved or monochrome.
That's the way the Falcon VIDEL is wired up then.
You will have to go back to one of the earlier Debian releases (slink or
potato) for Atari support in the X server. potato should still have the
Hrm, okay. I couldn’t find much in the ’net except a reference to
xfree68 but was unable to find that, either. Too bad, all the history…
Seaching for "xfree86 fbdev server m68k" does refresh my memory a bit -
the server package was called xserver-fbdev and you will find a sample
file at http://people.debian.org/~cts/debian-m68k/slink/XF86Config -

See above - it's xserver-fbdev, IIRC version 3.3.6 was the last to work.
Also take a look at

Blast from the past really - I never had much fun running X on my
mainly because the system became really unstable at high resolution or
Waiting for 10 minutes while the X server starts up was a bit annoying,
Are you trying to get the old X server running in ARAnyM, or 'just' port
the interleaved bit

layout and the VIDEL
that you need answered, Andreas and Petr might be better suited here.
xfree from source - that's memories well suppressed which do not bear
