I also have it working without problems under Fedora Core 4 with the write
delay set to 50.

There is a bug with the keypad input handling in the CFontzPacket driver
Since it does differential updates to the screen instead of refreshing
the whole screen each render cycle, if nothing has changed on the screen
it never sends a packet to the display (this happens if you have heartbeat
turned off). The key-press packets are only read from the port while
waiting for an ACK after sending a command to the display, so if the
data in the frame buffer doesn't change it never looks for any key-press

I've worked around this by making it to send a "ping" command to the
display on every render cycle. It's a bit of a kludge, but it works.
