Thanks for the info. Ich glaube, wir reden an einander vorbei.

I was not looking for an explanation on how to use the frame buffer via the 
vga argument in grub.conf (it works fine), but how to use kernel-based 
mode setting. I think that has been answered: it is simply not ready yet. I 
will, however, keep trying with each successive kernel, remembering to 
disable auto login beforehand.

The problem I have is how to get the i915 modelines recognized, which, as 
yet, are not.
