What effect does the kernel parameter VGA=<MODE> have on an init 3 console
How do you setup Linux to enable recognize the different vga modes?
I've always had the vga=normal option in my lilo.conf. Are you saying it doesn't do anything unless linux has framebuffer support?
What about these vga=<modes> :
vga=normal -----80x25 text mode
vga=extended -----80x50 text mode
Could it be that the vga=<mode> lilo.conf option works with both the standard linux console & the framebuffer console depending upon the mode value you supply it? Maybe the decimil numbers apply to a framebuffer console & the text values apply to a standard linux console?
