im trying to install frame buffer support on the 2.4.20-XX Kernel on RedHat 9. unfortunately when I do a make xconfig, under console drivers frame buffer support is shaded out. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
Acid thanks, I appreciate it. zmedico, i dont know where you got that it has support already, every article I have read from RedHat declares that it doesn't. I think rebuilding the kernel in redhat is a smart thing regardless of what little tasks you want to complete.
framebuffers are nearly always enabled by default. never found one that wasn't compiled with vesafb in it, ceratinly redhat always do. maybe you'er reading docs about a matrox framebuffer or some other specialized bit of kit?
