To follow-up on that issue.
It seems that after having failed initially, I tried again (nothing
changed), and this time, the X server started allright.
I even was able to input the pin (hard with that strange keyboard),
and place/receive calls.
Success, I declare !
Now, I'll have to update
http://wiki.openmoko.org/wiki/Om_2008.8#Download to update details on
how to boot it from SD.
Thanks for the feedbacks received. It helped me keep on trying ;-)
