I dubt that simple premission stuff would solve the issue. Even if you
log in in console as root and start screen, then framebuffer programs do
NOT work (but svgalib programs do work on achitectures that have it).
For example, fbgs says:

ioctl VT_GETSTATE: Invalid argument (not a linux console?)

I also dubt that udev will ever be able to do anything useful, but I
cannot be sure since for my good luck I do not use it.
