So the fix for the X problem in 5.5 narrowly missed the 5.6 release. It is part of the 5.6 source, but it's not in the binary. I assume the build for the Z starts earlier than other platforms given that it's built natively on a Zaurus and must take quite a bit longer.
To get the fix, do your upgrade/install to 5.6
Grab the xenocara.tar.gz from your local mirror.
Cd to /usr
Extract the tarball.
Cd to /usr/xenocara/lib/libpciaccess
make -f Makefile.bsd-wrapper obj
make -f Makefile.bsd-wrapper build
That will do the install as well. Fire up X and you're good to go.
Don't worry, the build for just this library doesn't take very long.

It's been years since I've booted up the Zaurus. Always kept it around as I would occasionally be inspired to play it with it once in a while. It's time again! Only now, I have forgotten my user and root password to openBSD (somehow I've remembered by password for the forum).
I know I can boot into single user mode to reset, but I can't get it to a boot> prompt. If I start the Zaurus with D+B it boots directly to a linux login. For which, I naturally cannot remember the credentials for either. Otherwise I'm at the usual 'wipe it all out and start from Zaurus defaults' menus.
I'd like to not have to start everything from scratch. I wouldn't even know how to set up the Zaurus software anymore. How can I just get to the BSD boot> menu?
EDIT: Ok, I figured out thelinux prompt is the emergency linux and I can get in as root with no password. Can't get the BSD installer to mount the drive. Really, what I want to do is just look at what's on there and save anything off I'll need again then do a clean BSD install.
