A step I think is necessary to make the software run is to configure the framebuffer to 8bpp, that's what framebuffer_configure does, it is used also in my port of KPV.
BTW, where did you get that log? I'm just using strace at the moment since I can't get a proper log. Never had references to devcap but maybe I just didn't notice.
You can start syslog-ng if you uncomment the line with 127.0.0.1 in the config file, then you get everything via tail -f /var/log/messages.
I think that possibly the framebuffer configuration is no problem, since X already runs and could do that for us. Also, instead of using a kernel module I just modified the paths in the binary as a quick hack, but I'd be interested in the kernel module as well. Or maybe a LD_PRELOAD library that redirects these specific paths would be a good idea, since that would mean that it works without having to build a kernel module or modifying the binaries.
