Because the i815 card is misdetected by the X config scripts vesa is
used instead of intel driver. However, with vesa the card does not work,
only garbage is displayed on the screen.

Is it better with the latest X packages?

I do not have the board mounted in anything right now so it is not exactly easy to test.
Hopefully I will get to this later.

Also it might be that the misdetection only occurs with scripts that try to determine the card automatically using debconf like live- initramfs does. At least for one card the automatic detection works if there is the default config with no card specified but fails if live-initramfs tries to determine the card type using debconf.
