My first question on this forum (and definitely not the last....)
I have an AST Ascentia M series laptop running Red Hat 7.0 (enigma) with XFree86 4.2 (I think). Xconfigurator never seemed to work correctly with the graphics chipset (Cirrus GLD 7555 2Mb video ram) until I discovered from another site that by passing the parameter "vga=791" to activate the framebuffer thingy at the LILO prompt the chipset works great. I also get the funky penguin whilst booting
My problem is this. I want to pass this parameter to the kernel automatically so I don't have to do ctrl-x and manually enter "vga=791" every time I start up the laptop. I have added the following line in various places of lilo.conf :
and it doesn't work anywhere. I tried at the start as a global parameter and also just after the 'linux' line too but to no avail.
(Before anyone says, yes I did run the 'lilo' command afterwards
Incidentally I did the same on my Red Hat 9 box with no problems. Just added it at the end of the linux line in /boot/grub/grub.conf with no problems.
