yep, I tried it. It works, but it's slower.

apt-get install xserver-xorg-core

change ~/.xserverrc

to exec Xorg
instead of Xfbdev

Works for me.  Very slow.  Almost bearable though.  Needs to be rebuilt.  Pdaxrom and angstrom use kdrive don't they?

thinking about gumstix to replace/augment zaurus

By default I think Andromeda uses Xfbdev which is a type of kdrive/(Tiny X) I think.  But it doesn't handle everything that you can throw at Xorg.  

For example, OpenGL stuff doesn't work at all in many cases.

it'd be nice to see an x11perf or xbench or gtkperf or some other comparison between xorg and kdrive
