Still a bit vague... Are you saying that the only thing you did was to
change the X video device driver line? fbdev has nothing to do with X
(although it can use FBDev, just as mplayer can use fbdev). It's a
feature of the Linux kernel. There are plenty of docs available on how
to enable it. Basically, you just need a line like "vga=788" in your
bootloader's options... You don't need X at all.
