Doesn't work for me (8.2). It prints some information on the screen, but
all on the same line - no scrolling - happens too fast to read any of
it, and leaves the screen as found when done. I tried redirecting to a
file, but that comes to 0 bytes.

I am also on 8.2. Does splash work on your machine? Your video card can run X but not support framebuffers. Again, it will show what your card will handle. I suspect your card does not support framebuffer.
