since no one has replied let me start the ball rolling

open /dev/fb0 no device means you have yet to create it....but you also need fb support built in or module for kernel.

can you show link to your is another one

also read /usr/src/.. linux-version..../Documentation/fb/framebuffer.txt

good luck
