Framebuffer and logo working with kernel 2.6.5?


Hi
I've just recompiled kernel 2.6.5 over and over again...
But I still cannot get the framebuffer and logo to work.

With the precompiled kernel of Debian (kernel-image-2.6.5-1-k7-smp) it does work perfectly but the problem whit it was that I cannot compile the NVidia driver, so I had to compile my own kernel and install it.

What is the exact config kernel I have to select?

Thanks in advance
Andrea



P.S.:Sorry for my English, but it's not my mother-language

You're going from scratch? well make sure in kernel settings you have enabled "prompt for experimental features" (or something very similar). with this option checked the framebuffer options (and many many others) will be available. in the 2.6 kernel i think it was under device drivers then graphics devices. just choose vesa.

Again proving my theory that the only people who ever say this are the ones who totally don't need to!
