I would suggest to use a 2.6 kernel. On my RiscPC, 2.6.0-rmk2 together with
all the patches I submitted to rmk's patch system does a good job. For
instance the keyboard is working properly also in XFree86. And with a slight
modification to the fbdev driver to make use of the rgb offset, I can even
use 16 and 32bpp for X. And sooner or later you have to move to 2.6 anyway.

Not really, I just used it for a fresh woody install to upgrade to sid, and
everything went ok.
