I suppose you have the same laptop as mine :)
Udev won't create fb nodes in /dev and X needs them to use fbdev.
Nodes are not created as the kernel does not yet have sysfs support
for fb drivers. You need them to create by hand or with
/etc/udev/links.conf Marco added in his package.

I guess sda* partitions are not created by udev but sda.
I saw a workaround somewhere to get them created along with sda, but I
can't find it immediatly.
Maybe a simple fdisk on it (no write) will make udev create them.

Set it to use vi as editor, rm `which pico` and be happy - usually patch  
is mangled by pico, not pine itself.

..ooO(and if somebody starts whining "but puko is user-friendly" you don't want
their patches anyway)
