I'm not using "UseFBDev". I'm sorry, I feel that I'm always missing the spot not giving the expected details...
the XFree.log says:
(WW) r128(0): Cannot not read colourmap from VGA. Will restore with default

So it might be 15/16/24/32 bpp (and according to xdpyinfo it is), but the colors are all messed up. I can help giving any address range or whatever might help you.
The FB penguin looks quite weird as well (looks as if Andy Warhol got crazy on it)

PS: Olaf, doesn't work with kernel argument "video=ofonly" or "video=offb", thanks anyway
