Ed: just tested with video=1600x1200@75 which is the maximum resolution, links works at that resolution ... I must have played around with video setting because on the normal terminal the text is smaller than I wanted

What I have discovered so far is that vesa does not work on my very basic chip; the highest mode available is 123, which obviously doesn't contain enough colours for 10pt antialiased print display; hence the poor legibility in links. 318, which is the mode I really need, isn't recognised.
I'm going to try with the native driver i810fb, which has a lot of options and see if that gets round it.
Got it! I'm using Links on the framebuffer right now and it reads beautifully. The trick is to use the native i810fb driver and specify bpp=24 (true colour). The problem is I can't yet boot in this mode. I have to insert the module after booting. But I'm sure I'll find a way around that.
I wish I could compile this driver in. But so far I haven't succeeded in doing that; it's <m> or nothing. Another thing to work on.
