Apparently it is ..
My kernel conf looks like this (relevant part only):
device vga # VGA video card driver
# Vesa support and options
options VESA # VESA support (man syscons)
options SC_PIXEL_MODE # SC Screen Resolution (man syscons)
options SC_KERNEL_CONS_ATTR=(FG_LIGHTRED|BG_BLACK) # Kernel message will
be printed red on black
# Splash and ScreenSaver support
device splash # Splash screen and screen saver support
# syscons is the default console driver, resembling an SCO console
On that scenario, the only working screensaver seems to be "logo_saver" ...
the rest of the screensavers don't work.
