It seems to be that X is having a hard time displaying the video feed for some reason I can't discover (yet). I took a look at the /var/log/Xorg.0.log file (while attempting to run cheese) and it said: "Could not allocate memory for the video" That's why it worked remotely before (apparently). I also tried loading extra modules in xorg.conf (the ones that are loaded in the XO-1.5 config) but no go. I'm looking forward to read clues about how to fix it.
