Framebuffer problems

I'm putting an older machine back in service. I'm having a problem with the
framebuffer. I see teh penguin on startup, so frambuffer is starting, but
when I try to use, say fbi (and other framebuffer apps), I get:

can handle only packed pixel frame buffers

Here's dmesg, if it helps:
