Re: X vs serial console?

Yes. Mouse, can post the output of this:

$ ls -l $(which Xorg)

If the Xorg server is setuid, then you can tell it to open
/dev/ttyE4 directly by adding a `vt5' to the xinit command:

#! /bin/sh
exec xinit /home/mouse/X/x-client -- /usr/X11R7/bin/X vt5 \
	-retro -tst -depth 8 -cc 3 -listen tcp

I'm not sure, however, if this is useful when no wsdisplays
seem to have been configured with a serial console. Are
gettys running? Any errors from them?

If you have an Intel card, then you can tell X to reprobe
outputs using:

	Option      "ReprobeOutputs"    "on"

Also try:

xrandr --output VGA1 --off
xrandr --output VGA1 --auto
