Not availible, submitted from NetBSD 1.4.2 with PMAG-B
Whenever you try to start an X-server from NetBSD 1.5 Alpha 2, with a
PMAG-C or PMAG-E card, you get the following message:
couldn't open /dev/fb0
FBIOGTYPE ioctl failed: Bad file descriptor
xnit: No such file or directory (errno 2): unexpected signal 13
If you run the X server with a PMAG-B, there's no problem.

My guess is that it has something to do with the new drivers for these
graphics cards.
