I've problems getting X to run on a maxine with a pmag-b framebuffer.
The bootup messages are:

Feb 23 06:32:04 hobbes /netbsd: xcfb0 at tc0 slot 2 offset 0x0fb: more 
frame buffers probed than configured!
Feb 23 06:32:04 hobbes /netbsd: 
Feb 23 06:32:04 hobbes /netbsd: cfb0 at tc0 slot 0 offset 0x0 
(1024x864x8) (console)

When I type 'startx -- -fp tcp/localhost:7100'
the console turns to inverse video (black on white) and does nothing.
Xcfbpmax uses CPU time (according to PS) but displays nothing.
If I connect the monitor to the baseboard video connector, then nothing at
all is displayed.
The only way to continue seems to kill -9 the X server.
Do I need a special kernel with some more/less devices configured?
Do I need some extra params to the X server?

Any help is appreciated.
