Well, vesafb is loading, but...

You are not getting a framebuffer. That's just the default
non-framebuffer resolution. I imagine all the menus are also horrible
and cutting off as well. Nothing that uses framebuffer will work...

I shall look at this more closely - evidently something other than
vesafb has to  load/happen for you to get 1024x768 resolution ... Which
would be columns x lines=128x48 , iirc.

Will report back if I can figure this one out!
As I said in my previous reply, I need to hear from other users as well.

It might be helpful to know, though, whether you are running INX on a
"Netbook" or similar. Some machines just can't supply the 1024x768x16
framebuffer. Does the same thing happen with inx-1.1, or inx-1.17 ?
If those "work", then we still have a bug. If not, then this is at
least not specific to inx-lucid-alpha-2

Can you get 800x600 with inx-lucid-alpha-2 ? That would be vga=788 on
the boot line, which you can access from F6 on the initial boot screen.
Just edit that line to vga=788 and hit <enter>

Thanks again,
