I've been testing a bit with that, but at least on my laptop (which seems 
to need intelfb) I could not get it to work.
First I got a conflict with the vesafb driver, but even after compiling a 
custom kernel I could not get anything useful. I'm not sure that directfb 
currently even supports other framebuffer drivers.

Thanks for confirming that. At least we now know that it does not actually 
fail to start the installer anymore, but falls back in a nice way.

Sorry the graphical interface does not work for your system. We can 
hopefully resolve that for the next Debian release (Lenny).


Note to developers: please leave this BR with cdebconf-gtk-udeb. I'd like 
to have at least one bug report there to document this issue.
A similar report is #400898.
