crazy question, but did you try specifying the video console on which
to run the xinit for examples

Hello Linux-MIPS users,

I installed the Hardhat 5.1 distribution on an Indy system
with 8-bit basic graphics.

The system boots without any problems and I also installed
the XFree86 4.0.1 binaries on the system, but when I start
the X-server by typing 'startx' the graphics console
blanks and a cursor appears on the top left corner of
the screen.

Does anybody know if the 8-bit graphics is supported
by the XFree86 4.0.1 server?

Thanks in advance,

Geert Albert
