Is this *really* text mode?  Or does this draw pixels on the screen? :

   dd if=/dev/urandom of=/dev/fb0 count=200 &> /dev/null

Can you send /etc/X11/XF86Config-4 to the list, please?

Also, we need the output of:

   cat /sys/class/graphics/fb0/modes

   cat /sys/class/graphics/fb0/bits_per_pixel

That's impossible to answer until we know why it isn't working.

BTW, the stifb driver can't change the screen resolution, so what you
have in /etc/XF86Config-4 has to match the current resolution (which
you can change from the PDC "BOOT_ADMIN" prompt).  (FWIW, it should be
possible to fix the driver.)
