If "cat /proc/fb" gives some output, you have a framebuffer. Inside X, press 
ctr, alt and one of F1 to F6 at the same time. You will be in a text console 
that is usually based on a framebuffer in new distributions. Start oberon 
from there. If it doesn't start please send me the oberon.log file. You might 
have to set some permissions (IIRC /dev/fb0 must be read/writeable) and 
symlinks (IIRC /dev/ttyS0 and /dev/mouse must be/point to your console/mouse 
and be read/writable). You can usually switch back to X by pressing Alt-F7 at 
the same time.
