framebuffer


How do I enable framebuffer... I have 2.4.20-8.
When I select on menuconfig Enable development and/or incomplete code/drivers it doesnt give me the menu with framebuffer.
NOTE: I have RH9

Don't select it.

If you want to manually override it, you can always hand-edit the .config file.

In the .config file, have it look something like this like this:

#
# Console display driver support
#
CONFIG_VGA_CONSOLE=y
# CONFIG_MDA_CONSOLE is not set
CONFIG_DUMMY_CONSOLE=y
CONFIG_FRAMEBUFFER_CONSOLE=y
CONFIG_PCI_CONSOLE=y
# CONFIG_FONTS is not set
CONFIG_FONT_8x8=y
CONFIG_FONT_8x16=y

I have never been able to get them pretty high-res (1024x768) console modes after a re-compile. So if you get it, let me know...
