I rolled a new netboot image, and corrected a number of issues in the
Your procedure is successful!
I got a working system out of the box with the login prompt in ttyx.

I did the post-install of gnewsense-pkgsel-desktop

Then, the Xserver crashed, so that I postinstalled the
xserver-xorg-video-siliconmotion_2.2.8-lemote.r03_mipsel.deb (see and copied a xorg.conf from another

X should work with stock packages if you set it to use fbdev:

 Section "Device"
        Identifier      "Configured Video Device"
        Driver          "fbdev"
        Option          "Usenks FBDev"              "true"

this is much less hassle.  I'll see what I can do to automate it.

I added the "fbdev" option and downgraded the xserver-xorg-video-siliconmotion
to the initial version from the mips-l repository.

I modified the xorg.conf as metioned in the mailing-list, and got into the desktop successfully. I found that the screen refresh rate cannot be modified, it is 0Hz. I set it in the xorg.conf as ubuntu's method and it seems not work. I've installed the package "xserver-xorg-video-siliconmotion_2.2.8 <>".

Does anyone come across the same problem?

Thanks you again
