Thanks for the answer. Now it looks much better, I get something
working, but only at 640x480.

xrandr reports:

Screen 0: minimum 640 x 480, current 640 x 480, maximum 640 x 480
default connected 640x480+0+0 0mm x 0mm
   640x480         0.0* 

If I'm trying to add higher resolution xrandr reports:

xrandr: Failed to get size of gamma for output default
xrandr: screen cannot be larger that 640x480 (desired size 800x600)
xrandr: Configure crtc 0 failed

best regards
