Some notes I made regarding matrox frame buffer in Gentoo - kernel 2.6.11

Posted 01-19-2006 at 10:26 PM by tw001_tw

#1 - Using the Matrox framebuffer
TIP: Do NOT, and I repeat, DO NOT, compile into your kernel "vesafb', or "vesafb-tng" if you choose "Matrox Acceleration".

cd /usr/src/linux
make menuconfig

This is what you need (how I did it):

My Opic Views

Sure, why not? Myopic people can see real well up close, so if we restrict this blog to matters close at hand then the defective vision should serve us well. No big pictures though. So what's near by? What's next door? A vacant lot is next door, and it's near by. It would also sell for an arm and a leg if it were for sale at all, and there's little need to ask why: There are just all sorts of people like me and not nearly so many plots such as that - or are there?

The electronics hobby seems to have died down since everything became disposable.I have built the LIRC and NOPPP .I recently installed Ktechlab 0.3 .I am a novice to PIC programming and assembly code,but I was able to simulate a working PIC circuit in a few minutes.PICs have been around for what?Ten years or so?They don't seem to be disapearing .
I would like to see the success of open source hardware and open source PIC software.I have a good electronic circuit,really part of a circuit.But...

Why is my Windoze addiction so hard to kick?

I'm starting to think I'm a junkie...

I've got win98, XPSP2, Debian Sarge, and Redhat9 all and selectable on boot...

I cannot get away from using XPSP2 and I WANT TO!...:)

I was hoping when I did it bway back when that the Debian installer would install a desktop for me but I had to figure that out by myself....Redhat9's install trashed the grub config and I ended up wiping the drive and starting again from scratch....

I don't even look...
