Enabling linux framebuffer

Hello Everybody

To work with Qt Embedded , im in need of having read/write access to the framebuffer.
I have enabled framebuffer in my kernel too. Still i dont have any read/write access to my framebuffer. When i used a sample code to read data from framebuffer , it could just open the framebuffer but i couldnt read data from it.
I have RH9 with kernel 2.6.10 installed. Can anyone help me out in enabling read/write access to the framebuffer?
