Thanks for the info. In that snapshot (20020410) it was indeed not yet
present in GENERIC_LAPTOP.

But the device was there, just not the symlink. I saw the device but
dared not assume a symlink was correct, it usually isn't with devices.
Anyway, it worked, after I managed to limit the screen size to 1024x768.
Apparently it tried 1600x1024 but the laptop's display did not like it
and produced just a black screen.
