I thought that uvesafb was still experimental.  Maybe you are better off
using vesafb, or try installing one of the via unichrome frame buffer
drivers available from via or directfb.  Vesafb, as it has already been
pointed out, takes the decimal form when fed to the kernel at boot time,
eg vga=792 equates to 1024x768-24; note *vga=* in this instance, not
*video=*.  I don't think that vesafb operates at a 32 bit colour depth.
