I had hacked up a stifb driver for my 715/64 (Artist GFX card) a few weeks 
ago, which will give you at least correct colors. If you want to test it you 
may download the current (unfinished and ugly!) version from
ftp://people.redhat.com/hdeller/parisc_stifb ,
put both files in /drivers/video/sti and recompile.
This version is based on the XFree86-sources and doesn't fix the cat/dev/fb0 
problem yet.
