The snapshot you posted doesn't have much information... there's no
obvious error for example in there...

What video driver are you trying to use ? Have you tried plain offb ?
(disabling whatever is the native driver for your video card, ie,
radeonfb or aty128fb or even atyfb, dunno what you have in there).

You can also try something like "udbg-immortal" on the kernel command
line see if that brings you more debug output.
