I checked inx-lucid on 2 machines:  One is a Gateway E series, One is 
Dell Optiplex GX270 with 18.5 inch wide screen monitor (AOC and Acer).

Both have Intel corp 82865G (rev02) video cards

Both report cat /etc/issue.net as inx lucid-alpha-2

One reports lsmod | grep vesafb as  3542 1
tput lines 48
tput cols 128
**This plays the a_new_computer.ogg video in color in an 8 1/2 x 5 1/2 
inch output

(booted 800 x 600 from inx lucid usb)

Other computer best results:

lsmod | grep vesafb 3542  1
tput lines 37
tput cols  100
This computer does start mplayer, but no video shows and audio gives a 
Theora error (looking for libogg iirc). 

On both computers xlinks -g works with mouse scrolling.

Hope this is helpful.
