i just managed to make my slack boot up with vesa framebuffer, the problem is that no matter what VGA option i put in lilo.conf, it goes to 640x480
however, X works with a 1280x1024x24 resolution
what can i do to make it work?
i did run lilo after modifying the .conf file, it's not that and i think it's not my video card either as it works in X and as i recall it worked at boot time before i recompiled the kernel
but thanks for your trouble
the thing still doesn't work, no matter what value i give to lilo it goes into 640x480
what bothers me is that it used to work with the first kernel i had, but i had to change that one and i erased it
isn't there another kernel config option that affects this, besides VESA Framebuffer?
thanks for you trouble
