TinyX (AKA Xfbdev AKA kdrive) is a tiny X server. It's part of the XFree source.

See BuildingTinyXByHand to find out how I compiled it against uClibc


At least in 0.6, if you run "startx" from the console, the colors are messed up. Run it from a serial console or run it on startup. To run from startup, I added this to /etc/inittab


but I had to change startx to make it stay in the foreground. I removed "matchbox &" and added "exec matchbox" to the end of the script.

Although xv works fine now, colors still get messed up in xawtv. Maybe it can't handle 8 bit color depth but instead of complaining it just puts up junk. :(
