I think that any of the portables with rage chips in them can use the same fbdev

What's wrong w/ compiling XFree4 yourself?  It went really painlessly for me,
once I applied the patches....just took a long time.   Just remember (if you get
it from a linuxppc/redhat directory tree) to specify the PREFIX= in the
./configure script so that it complies with the debian directory tree....
