How do I get higher res console support?


I just recompiled to a 2.6 kernel, and everything works fine except for this. I had a 2.4 kernel before that this worked fine in. When it boots it boots fine, and it changes to 1024x768 but the screen is completely black and I have to login and startx blind.
In the kernel I have enabled video mode selection support, what else do I need to do? I did this fine before when I recompiled my 2.4 kernel but I forget what it was because it was awhile ago.

Do you have fb console support enabled? Is bootsplash on? In some cases, having bootsplash off can be helpful.
