Now I am runing TinyX on ARM. Have run Xfbdev successful.

The next step, I want to run a window manager in ARM linux.

 I have found swm in TinyX/bin direction.

But When i runing swm ERROR:

could not open display

if i run swm -display /dev/fb0? Also it error
could not open display /dev/fb0

Also there are many other window manager, such as qvwm, fvwm, icewm,
jwm, karmen, so on

Which window manager do you prefer to use in Embedded Linux?

I have cross compiled jwm and karmen for Embedded Linux. But when run
jwm, karmen, it also ERROR as:

karmen: can't open display

error: could not open display

I think the error is due to display device?

What is the problem?

What should I solve these problem?

Thank you very much.

You don't have a framebuffer.   See if your hardware supports a
framebuffer.  Then see if your kernel supports a framebuffer.  Then read
the framebuffer docs to see how to enable it.

Your hardware may not have a framebuffer; I have a machine that only
supports SVGA, so it needs a different X server....
