Well, I was sharing what fixed my X problem.  I was trying
to run "startx" as a normal user and it was giving me some
error that seemed to be a read error.  Given that fact,
that /dev/fb* was 622, and my RH partition (I'm running
both RH and Debian on my SS10) had the permissions for
/dev/fb* as 666... well, I figured that was the problem
and X has been working reliably for me since.

May or may not be the solution to your problem, and I
wish you luck...
