about frame buffer
I write a program to test the frame buffer but by program is not working because /dev/fb0 is not there in /dev then i created /dev/fb0 using mknod but that too is not working
what i feel is while creating /dev/fb0 you have to know both major and minor number i know only major number from /proc where can i get minor number could you guys please help.
i am using fedora core 2.6.9 kernel. Also just me that it is right to test the framebuffer or not.
It probably needs to be enabled in your kernel.
I usually look in devices.txt in the kernel Docs for these numbers. I have this, althought the fb0 one is the only one I've actually seen in use.
The framebuffer is nice when you don't want to fire up X11 for every little thing. I've had Xine, Links, w3m, and a little viewer called 'fbv' all running on it.
