I am running NetBSD 1.3.3 on an AlphaStation 500 with a TGA adapter, and
have the XalphaNetBSD Xserver that was included with the snapshot.  When I
try to run it with

XalphaNetBSD :0

It says:

alphaKbdPriv.fd = 0 (0)
alphaPtrPriv.fd = 1 (0)
Getting interface configuration (4): Device not configured
unable to get frame buffer type: Inappropriate ioctl for device

Fatal server error:
no screens found

I used xf86config to make my /etc/XF86Config, and it looks okay.

any ideas what the problem might be?
