When the intelfb module is compiled into the kernel all consoles remain
blank until the X server starts up. Using it as a module is not an
option for non-CRT screens (see
http://www.xfree86.org/~dawes/intelfb.html, which I'm assuming not to be
outdated on this issue). This makes the driver unusable for laptops.
The initialization seems to be OK (from dmesg):
Linux agpgart interface v0.100 (c) Dave Jones
agpgart: Detected an Intel 830M Chipset.
agpgart: Maximum main memory to use for agp memory: 202M
agpgart: Detected 892K stolen memory.
agpgart: AGP aperture is 128M @ 0xe8000000
intelfb: Framebuffer driver for Intel(R) 830M/845G/852GM/855GM/865G
intelfb: Version 0.9.2
ACPI: PCI Interrupt Link [LNKA] enabled at IRQ 9
PCI: setting IRQ 9 as level-triggered
ACPI: PCI interrupt 0000:00:02.0[A] -> GSI 9 (level, low) -> IRQ 9
intelfb: 00:02.0: Intel(R) 830M, aperture size 128MB, stolen memory
intelfb: Non-CRT device is enabled ( DVO port B ). Disabling mode
intelfb: Initial video mode is 640x480-16@60.
I was unable to try vesa modes with a higher resolution than vga=0x311
as my BIOS doesn't support these values.
This problem is similar to bug #289810, but I doubt that is directly
related as vesafb doesn't figure into this particular configuration.
Thanks for looking into this.

As mentioned in the bug report, the problems you were experiencing most
likely resulted from Debian-specific modular framebuffer patches. These
patches have been dropped from Debian kernels long ago, and the kernel
you've originally reported the problem against is long gone too. Thus
there are reasons to believe that this bug is fixed in current kernels, so
I plan to close this bug report in two weeks from today (April 26th,
2006), unless you're still experiencing problems. If that's still the
case, please post updated information to the bug.
Please, feel free to close the bug. I'm running 2.6.15 now, which works like a
charm, and don't even own the hardware in question anymore.
Excellent, closing the bug.
