On Ubuntu/Hardy (X 1.4.1):

Impeccable operation using 8.04.1 on LTSP, in which an updated GEODE
is installed, followed by rebuilding the LTSP squashfs image. fbcon
without fb. Stock kernel.

On Debian/Lenny (X 1.4.2):

Switching back and forth between a vcons and X produces a situation
where the default X-shaped mouse pointer glyph remains in the middle
of the screen, while the real pointer configured by GTK2 preferences
moves with the mouse. fbcon with lxfb. Custom kernel based on stock
Debian kernel, but with support for non-Geode peripherals removed.

On Ubuntu/Hardy (X 1.5):

Square box around the mouse pointer glyph when X initially launches.
fbcon wihout fb. Stock kernel.
