I was thinking about framebuffer but I've not done any code.
I've discovered the Nano-X Project a small X-Window like server. 
( http://microwindows.censoft.com/ ) It uses the framebuffer under
Linux. Two toolkits are ported to Nano-X, GTK+ and FLTK. FLTK port
seems to be more advanced. I'm thinking to rewrite gnewt using FLTK
( http://fltk.org ) because it is faster and smaller than GTK+. But
FLTK doesn't yet support multibyte characters. So I'm waiting, and
working on a new non-internationalized project to learn FLTK
