thanks for your mail and sorry about the addresses, the GMX address

is actually listed, probably the port-arm list subscription - I
need to change that some day).
Regarding the X server support, right now I'm directly using the
epfb device through ioctl (see epio.h) with custom software.
However, I think that X11 support would be beneficial to be able to
run X11 apps, but I have not started any work in this respect, yet.
Please let me know when/if you start working on this.
As I said - if your CPU understands ARMv4 you can try the xserver.tgz
package from NetBSD/shark, it contains XFree86 and the wsfb driver
which gives you unaccelerated X in whatever video mode / colour depth
epfb set up. Otherwise it's pretty much trivial to enable building
the same on evbarm, just do what shark does ( as in - grep for
'shark' in src/x11/ Makefiles and add your platform ). To make
build.sh happy you'd have to add a bunch of entries to the file lists
too but that's not necessary to get things built.
