Agreed. you can take a look at what modules are available for that stock
kernel by typing:


it will give you a menu of modules you can insert or remove with the
menu.  nifty little program.  if you don't have it:

apt-get modconf

it's possible that the xorg userland driver doesn't know how to insert
your kernel module.  modconf not only inserts a module, but also makes
an entry in the file /etc/modules so the module you need is inserted
every time you boot.

Oh, and that was indeed what I meant about changing the driver to VESA.
