Framebuffer (uvesafb in gentoo)


Hello. This is a difficult and obscure issue that forced me to ask you for help in first time. I'm using Gentoo Linux, a month already. Now I wish to set up frame buffer, using uvesafb. I did everything as described in this instruction. When I try to compile uvesafb driver in kernel, next messages appear in a log after reboot:
Code:
localhost# grep vesa /var/log/messages
pr 10 14:52:40 localhost [    0.379170] PM: Adding info for platform:uvesafb.0
Apr 10 14:52:40 localhost [    5.379005] uvesafb: Getting VBE info block failed (eax=0x4f00, err=1)
Apr 10 14:52:40 localhost [    5.379084] uvesafb: vbe_init() failed with -22
Apr 10 14:52:40 localhost [    5.379162] uvesafb: probe of uvesafb.0 failed with error -22
Apr 10 14:52:40 localhost [    5.379313] PM: Adding info for platform:vesafb.0
when I try to compile uvesafb driver as module, I see only:
Code:
localhost# grep vesa /var/log/messages
Apr 10 15:27:34 localhost [    0.377559] PM: Adding info for platform:vesafb.0
That's what i have in my grub.conf file:
Code:
title Gentoo Linux
root (hd0,0)
kernel /boot/vmlinuz-2.6.27-gentoo-r8 root=/dev/sda3
video=uvesafb:mtrr:3,ywrap,1280x1024-32@70
I expect to see screen 1280x1024 in console, but that obvious that it's not.
