I dont think, you need all these drivers for the iso - I think vesa and
fbdev are enough. I have checked with crunchbang, that does not have a
lot of drivers with - Xorg loads both drivers and checks, which one
works better and most of the time it works better with fbdev - we would
also have better pulsbo support with the fbdev driver. You can check
this also with the slitaz.iso - if you check Xorg.0.log you will see,
that it wants to load the fbdev driver

The problem is, that the fbdev does not exist in cooking , so a package
has to be done
