Description of problem:
I am unable to start X under qemu "standard VGA" mode, please see the attached log.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
X.Org X Server 22.214.171.1241 (1.6.2 RC 1)
Steps to Reproduce:
1. qemu -hda /dev/sdb -m 512 -std-vga -boot c
I get back to the console, see the attached log for the error message
working X environment
/dev/sdb is USB stick if this matters.
Graphical interface worked during the installation.
p.s. omitting -std-vga option leads to
(EE) open /dev/fb0: No such file or directory
