To be honest, I'm way out of my depth in all that. I would be happy to
try a particular experiment, given instructions...

>e.g. disabling framebuffer?

Er, how? xserver-xorg-video-fbdev isn't installed, nor for that matter
xserver-xorg-video-modesetting. As I said, I'm out of my depth.

Ah! One I can answer:  AGP

>Which WM/DE(s) is/are you trying to use?

xfce4 and all that goes with it, but I don't think it's getting that
far. As previously remarked, that stuff does all work with the vesa
driver (achieved by tweaking xorg.conf).

Nope, though I might possibly not recognise a clue...

Apologies for uselessness (and also btw for wrecking the thread
structure with a completely inadvertent small subject change, the
genesis of which is a complete mystery to me).
