I get only:

trying to load module i915...failed.
trying to load module radeon...failed.
trying to load module nouveau...success.

and then it exits.

I also tried -s with various sizes, and they have some effect. The first 
time produced a gray screen which sounds like it is correct. Then it 
shut off the signal to the monitor and all later changes did not bring 
it back.

I think since I am using the NV45 driver which they say is going to be 
replaced, they are uninterested in bugs reported against it.
