kernel 2.4.17 and frame buffer help
Havin a prob.
LFS 3.2 (Built from BIG tarball) 2.4.17
kernel compile question: I compiled the kernel and copied it over to my slak side of the house. After editing lilo and reloading lilo I rebooted. Black screen, but the system is running. I ctrl+alt+del and boot up into slack and remove the vga=791 line in lilo.conf and reload lilo. All is good except it looks like crap, I miss my small text. Make menuconfig gives me some really funky colors and blocks.
Now my question is why it doesnt give me the option to enable frame buffewr support while doing a make config or make menuconfig. I've gone through the process a few times and I know where it should be but its not there.
the only option I get is CONFIG_VGA_CONSOLE and CONFIG_VIDEO_SELECT. I tried to add the needed lines in the config file by hand but it didnt like it
Download a new kernel source tarball? 2.4.18?
