Even though running x on db1550 could be slow, still want to try it
for fun. is the x windows already running on db1550?

The db1550 doesn't have a frame buffer, you would have to
attach some PCI graphics card.

.... I saw there is a
frame buffer driver for db board.

For the db1100, with it's internal frame buffer.

 Not sure if it can support the x ?

I've run the MIPS binaries that are floating around the 'net
on the Au1500 with a SM501 PCI controller.  Performance
was quite good.
