I reported a bug for people who want to check xorg.conf and Xorg.0.log

I tried to use the vga driver but the only mode that succeded to run is 
320x200....
I can accept low resolution but not a such one ;-)

In the Xorg.0.log, I get many lines as:
(II) VGA(0): Not using default mode "800x600" (insufficient memory for mode)
(II) VGA(0): Not using default mode "400x300" (insufficient memory for mode)

for a lot of modes, and finally:
(II) VGA(0): Not using default mode "1280x800" (insufficient memory for mode)
(WW) VGA(0): Mode pool is empty
(==) VGA(0): Virtual size is 320x200 (pitch 320)
(**) VGA(0):  Built-in mode "Generic 320x200 default mode": 12.6 MHz (scaled 
from 25.2 MHz), 31.5 kHz, 70.2 Hz (VScan)
(II) VGA(0): Modeline "Generic 320x200 default mode"   12.59  320 336 384 400  
200 206 207 224 vscan 2 -hsync +vsync
