I have cross-compiled Xfbdev for ARM9 core and running it on a board
powered by Freescale's i.MX21 processor and running Kernel Vanilla
2.6.22 with a few board-specific patches.

I use following command to start Xfbdev :
Xfbdev -screen 240x320x16 vt1 -br -fp /usr/lib/X11/fonts/misc -fn
fixed -fc fixed &

Xfbdev seems to have started running properly- I can see the prompt in
the middle on a small display (240 * 320) on the board.

I wrote a very simple client program to test my X installation.
However, it fails at the beginning itself- during the call to
XOpenDisplay. I traced down the problem till Xtrans, from where it

In my opinion might be due to Xserver is not able to return the
connection request. Why is it so ? Do I need to change any thing on
Xfbdev while cross-compiling ?
