Any chance you could stick your kernel image on the web somewhere, then let me
know privately where it is?  I'll try booting it on my system and see if the
framebuffer works there - that should narrow things down somewhat!

Just wanted to do this, but looked at it again first:
I now started a SuSE domU on the same system, and after a while I got
some output in the sdl window(I also started to think it doesn't work,
it seems to take w ahile until output is redirected to that console).
the first time the sdl window crashed after I tried to enter login
data, the second time I had other problems, but that's probably due to
the fact that this image is generally broken.

So it can be assumed that it's not a kernel issue, but maybe some
setting inside the domU.

I'm gonna try again now with a new debian domU and see what happens,
otherwise I'll create a clean SuSE domU and try to find why the one
works and the other not.
