        vga = "qxl"

in your configuration file? Are you saying that this configuration
works? If not this then which configuration do you believe works?

Which possible causes have you investigated and ruled out? What possible

If you ask questions about specific things which you cannot follow then
we may be able to point you in the right direction.
