Yes. It Works with a default debian vm without any changes to any
console settings. So all the config changes described here aren't
necessary for me.

Not sure if these settings made oit not work, or if I just did not
wait long enough, because it takes some time until something show up
on the screen. Can be that I did never wait long enough.

A problem that remains is that when using sdl the sdl windows crashes
quite easily. VNC seems to do better. And I have some local/keymap
issues. In SDL I seem to have some english keymap, and I know how to
handle this with my german keyboard. On VNC I seem to have a german
keymap, but some keys are twisted. For example, but that's not all,
shift-7 should give me a backslash, but it gives a question mark. (the
key that is supposed to give me a question mark gives one, also).
A bit strange...
