    I had compiled a kernel without frame buffer (no frame buffer support at
    all). Starting X gave the same screen (if I start X after doing something,
    it come up with junk on it - if I start X immediately after booting, it
    comes up black (should be dark green) and is unusable).

    Let me try the simplest kernel configuration I can.
