well, it all depends what u call 'fine'
if it's 'managed to boot up, took half of memory and runs @ 5fps'
then sure ;)

btw quick mem check on one of my uclibc based machines :
top memory consuming app: Xorg
45M resident (!) , 329M virtual. apps opened - xchat, few windows with
links browser, few terminal windows, xastir . wm - fluxbox.

i also do run X on 64 and even 32M machines, mainly because X is just
easy to deploy and some apps i use are not yet ported to directfb.
mem stats are quite similiar, top mem usage app - X.
performance ... well. above 1fps. it can be considered 'it works', right ?
