It ran fine for me in 8 bit color (uggh), but 16 bit failed to run though.
I'd always get ...

bpp = 15, depth = 16, BitsPerRGB = 6

Fatal server error:

Can't handel packed pixels with 15 bits per pixel

I assumed the framebuffer driver was using 15bpp and I was asking X to
interpret it, which it wouldn't.  

On the netwinders at least X is very slow using the framebuffer driver.  I
tried merge rebel's cyber 2000 driver into the X source code, but got
stuck on some assembler errors and havn't looked at it in awhile.
