This is a tipical case of vesafb not being able to start because of
unsupported video card: many video cards simply aren't supported by
vesafb, so we implemented a sw fallback to the textual frontend for
those cases.
My question is: why this mechanism, which is provided starting from
rootskel 1.47 and rootskel-gtk 1.02 did not work for Roy?
Roy, could you please test today's miniiso [1] and see if you're brought
to a textual interface by just pressing <enter> at boot prompt?

Yes ! it is giving a textual interface.

Cool! this mean the textual fallback mechanism does it job! :)
