You don't need to run twm to see if X works, just

   X -retro -config ~/xorg.conf.new

or you can check the just with

   X -retro -config /etc/X11/xorg.conf

You get a gray background and an X.  C-BS to exit.  You can at least see 
if the brightness looks right.

  Xorg -configure

will tell you what kind of video card X finds.  Look at ~/xorg.conf.new
