hi Stephen,

there's nothing inherently preventing emulated VGA from working - I just removed it from the config to bring the kernel down to minimum.

I will investigate  the PV console option, but could you perhaps try compile in vga(4) and see if it works ? you'll probably want to attach it with vga_isa  using 'vga0 at isa?'
