I tried that. I tried both fb and vesa in 640x480 resolutions; no joy.
I should have added that I can boot the system just fine into text mode; everything is there and AFAICT works. I've tried X, startx, Xfbdev, Xvesa from the command line; no joy. System either fails with a wrapper of some sort not found, or hangs on black screen.
What I really need is a log file or debug dump so I can tell where X is hanging.
Some googling and I've found that I most likely need the svga driver for that chipset; neither fb nor vesa will work.... How do I go about installing that?
