Hi folks,
  Here's some of the stuff I've uncovered. Looking around on Google,
some people have mentioned similar problems (but they were a long time
ago - October 2000), dealing with various endianness issues and the r128
framebuffer driver. I'll poke around more, but so far on my pismo both
vnc (tightvnc and regular vnc) and mplayer will display incorrectly:
tightvnc and mplayer display with a strange yellow tint, and regular vnc
looks like it's being drawn with an 8-bit depth, even though
investigation shows that it's not.
