    I got X working too...but not with any hardware accel under X!! :(  When I
run fbset --info I get...

mode "1024x768-60"
    # D: 64.998 MHz, H: 48.362 kHz, V: 60.002 Hz
    geometry 1024 768 1024 768 8
    timings 15385 160 24 29 3 136 6
    accel true
    rgba 8/0,8/0,8/0,0/0

Frame buffer device information:
    Name        : CyberPro2000
    Address     : 0x88000000
    Size        : 2097152
    Type        : PACKED PIXELS
    Visual      : PSEUDOCOLOR
    XPanStep    : 0
    YPanStep    : 1
    YWrapStep   : 0
    LineLength  : 1024
    MMIO Address: 0x88800000
    MMIO Size   : 786432
    Accelerator : Sun cg14

But when I run XF68_FBDev -showconfig I get...

voltron:~# XF68_FBDev -showconfig

XFree86 Version 3.3.6 / X Window System
(protocol Version 11, revision 0, vendor release 6300)
Release Date: January 8 2000
        If the server is older than 6-12 months, or if your card is newer
        than the above date, look for a newer version before reporting
        problems.  (see http://www.XFree86.Org/FAQ)
Operating System: Linux 2.2.13 armv4l [ELF]
Configured drivers:
   FBDev: Server for frame buffer device
   (Patchlevel 11): mfb, cfb8, cfb16, cfb24, cfb32

    So to me this means that I cannot get hardware acceleration since the
accelerator listed in fbset isn't in the listing from XF68_FBDev.  Is
there something else I can do to make it work?  I mean, it comes up in 
1024x768 in 16bit color but it is SLLLOOOWWW. :)
