-The **//vga=xxx//** boot code is used from the boot: prompt to force a video framebuffer mode. To use the framebuffer modes in TC the Xfbdev extension needs to be loaded. This is best done during the boot sequence by placing the Xfbdev extension in the directory from which extensions are automatically loaded (set using the tce=hdXY boot code). The system should be started in text mode initially as the .xsession  file in /home/tc will need to be edited to start xfbdev instead of xvesa.
