(here's a challenge) VGA text console modes with a new kernel.
Im running on slack 9.1, and have upgraded the kernel from the default 2.4.22 to a 'straight from source -install and compile- 2.6.2) For the most part everything works, except excpet the vga text consoles. Before slackware allowed me to run at 1024x768, it was nice. Now I can seem to get it to work in my new kernel. I found the option(s) (I think) in the kernel confiuartion process, and have got it set up in lilo (id imagine) but I cant get it to work, the system boots up and runs on a black screen until it booats into X.
First off, do I need to enable any frambuffer device drivers in the kernel config?
second, im running on a geforce mx 400 graphics card,
Please any slack experts would help.
