If you still want to run LNO you should run it without X

So I've queried the *linux* newsgroups 'how to run a framebuffer',
since previous googling didn't provide an answer.

Apparently the effort can be partly amortised on investigating
 the VNC project, which also fails[ed]. 

Some folks imply that my problem is that I'm still living in the
previous millenium.  So I'll try to find the latest.

TODAY's URL: "http://www.oberon.ethz.ch/native/"
"Latest PC Native Release (2.3.6) [next release early 2003]
Latest PC Native Beta Release (08.12.00) [next beta early 2003]
Latest PC Native Alpha Version (updated often)
- Oberon VNC page" -> http://www.oberon.ethz.ch/native/vnc/"

" With a VNC-Viewer, it is possible to look at the framebuffer 
of a remote VNC-Server and send keyboard or mouse 
commands to it...."

Q1 - what is the oldest version of N-O's VNC which worked ?

Q2 - Is TODAY's oberon.ethz.ch/native/ uptodate re.
   "next release early 2003" ?

Q3 - did I also get to 'not the latest' with 
Native/LinuxBased/lno020127.tgz   ?
