8.2 no X in Sony Vaio VGN-CR290E Intel GM965

I couldn't figure out how to stop X crashing trying to start with a normal boot,
so tried booting with 2 on cmdline to try with startx, first alone, then with
startx /usr/bin/startkde. The attachements are Xorg.0.log and Xorg.0.log.old.

inxi -GxxxSM -c0
System:    Host: Microknoppix Kernel: 4.16.5-64 x86_64 bits: 64 gcc: 7.3.0 Console: tty 2 dm: kdm
           Distro: Debian GNU/Linux buster/sid
Machine:   Device: laptop System: Sony product: VGN-CR290E v: R5360986 serial: 28399244-3000212
           Mobo: Sony model: VAIO serial: N/A BIOS: Phoenix v: R1080Q0 date: 09/21/2007
           Chassis: type: 10 serial: N/A
Graphics:  Card: Intel Mobile GM965/GL960 Integrated Graphics Controller (primary)
           bus-ID: 00:02.0 chip-ID: 8086:2a02
           Display Server: X.org 1.19.6 drivers: modesetting (unloaded: fbdev,vesa)
           tty size: 160x50 Advanced Data: N/A for root out of X

X works as expected with openSUSE/LXQt and Buster/TDE, but only when
video=SVIDEO-1:d is on kernel cmdline, so I use it with Knoppix too.
That results in X startup producing only a black screen that periodically
blinks.

The other reason to start with 2 was to try installing to HD, but as yet I
haven't found a howto for doing so.
