I created a debian mips virtual machine by downloading qcow2 images from here. I then started the virtual machine by

qemu-system-mips \
-m 256 \
-M malta \
-kernel vmlinux-3.2.0-4-4kc-malta \
-hda debian_wheezy_mips_standard.qcow2 \
-append "root=/dev/sda1 console=tty0" \
-net user,hostfwd=tcp::10022-:22 \
-net nic

I can ssh into the machine and can create a vnc server by appending -vnc :1. But I cannot start X by typing startx or any means. I have installed all necessary packages using apt-get install xfonts-base xfonts-cyrillic xserver-xorg-video-vesa lightdm

I created a new configuration by using X -configure But it says

vesa: Ignoring device with a bound kernel driver

Backtrace:
0: X (xorg_backtrace+0x70) [0x5a3980]

Segmentation fault at address (nil)

Fatal server error:
Caught signal 11 (Segmentation fault). Server aborting

Running startx gives

Fatal server error: no screens found

This is the full /var/log/Xorg.0.log from the guest debian machine:
