I think they wanted to confuse us, because you need the VESA VGA framebuffer driver instead of the Riva driver. Don't ask me why, but it works for me. As for no text, you did include the "append="splash=verbose"" line (if using LILO), right?
Thanks, really! That worked for these and even a boot-time hardware-related problem I'm having... Didn't even have to try verbosing.
An other issue came up:
Now the screen won't print out the way it should. All modes end up showing the upper side of each row - four times! The lower sides must have gone too close to /dev/null or something. Plus 640 & 800 modes have a misplacement (either left or right) for every row (and the 4 x multiplications).
I've tried all the reso-color combinations from 640x480x8b to 1024x768x24b and turning some BIOS AGP options off.
