knoppix64 8.2 on Sandy Bridge produces no X

This is from 8.1 DVD:

# cat /proc/cmdline
lang=de video=vga16fb:off apm=power-off nomce hpsa.hpsa_allow_any=1 loglevel=1
BOOT_IMAGE=linux64 lang=en apm=power-off initrd=minirt.gz nomce
hpsa.hpsa_allow_any=1 loglevel=1 hpet=off desktop=lxde no3d nocomposite nomce noagp
# inxi -Gxx -c0
Graphics:  Card: Intel 2nd Generation Core Processor Family Integrated Graphics
Controller
           bus-ID: 00:02.0 chip-ID: 8086:0102
           Display Server: X.Org 1.19.3 drivers: modesetting (unloaded: fbdev,vesa)
           Resolution: 1920x1200@59.95hz
           OpenGL: renderer: Mesa DRI Intel Sandybridge Desktop x86/MMX/SSE2
           version: 3.3 Mesa 17.2.0 (compat-v: 3.0) Direct Render: Yes

No other combination of typed in cmdline parameters I've tried gets to a KDE or
LXDE session (including "" and failsafe). (Gnome as a matter of principle I
don't touch)

Booting with 2 on cmdline works as expected.

Using the exact same cmdline appendages as shown above for 8.1 in attempting
with 8.2:

        INIT: Id "x1" respawning too fast: disabled for 5 minutes.

Some other combinations got as far as painting the big Knoppix/Tux graphic, but
no more. Dmesg provides no recognizable clues. Journalctl finds no entries.

Same two DVDs work in various newer and older Intel gfx PCs here.
