Nope, it's the TGA for sure.  I ran into this problem on my UDB awhile ago
(when TGA fb support was first added to the kernel).  With TGAs, you need
to enable that fb support or else you will get no console access (the
system should still be pingable and will work, but you will get no console
messages at all after the Loading line).
