I tried running Xvesa -listmodes as the page suggests, just in a terminal window, not starting up in runmode. This indicates that 800x600x8 and 1024x768x8 should be options, using the vga codes shown under F3 at boot. But the vga cheatcodes don't seem to have an effect if I run Xvesa and I can't run xfbdev on this machine, it freezes up.
Just checked, running xsetup.sh and selectin xfbdev causes an error:
modprobe: modprobe: Can't locate module fb0
XIO: fata IO error 104 (Connection reset by peer) on Xserver ":0:0"
after 0 requests (o known processed) with 0 events remaining.
I exited the window manager, ran xsetup.sh with xfbdev as xserver, then ran xstart. Xvesa works fine though.
