I will confirm that your card must be supported or you will be
limited to VGA. However, you will find that your card may be
supported and you will still have to use VGA, because the
"support"  doesn't work.

You do not have to be root to run zgv. I do it every day with my
2.0 system here at home. I use the default zgv and libvga
installations, save only setting the libvga.config by hand for 
vga :(.
