-current on raspberry pi 2


Hi guys,
I've successfully installed -current on my raspberry pi using fatdog's installer and kernel/modules/firmware packages.

I can't start X though, it says that the 'fbdev' X module is not found and other X drivers give an ABI version mismatch error (being 15 versus the server being 18)

Do you have any ideas on how to get it running ? If there are instructions anywhere I can try to replicate slackware's build and add myself the fbdev driver.

Thanks!

Re-sync -current and you'll get the fbdev driver.

When you say 'and other X drivers' do you mean 'modesetting' or were there others?
