I was wondering if it is possible to add framebuffer support to the RedHat 9 kernel [2.4.20.x] ? I hadn't seen such an option in the RedHat 8 kernel[2.4.18-14] and I am under the assumption that there isn't any fb support in this one either [I haven't checked though]. The reason I need fb is that I use a SiS 305 Graphics Card which does support acceleration to a certain extent but requires the SiSFB device [more info on that at http://www.winischhofer.net/linuxsis630.shtml
.] I found a document [http://dnetc.org/?s=fbcon
]on the web on compiling a SuSE kernel [2.4.19] under RedHat and I was able to successfully patch with the SiS drivers and compile and use that kernel. However the problem is when I want to install rpm packages made for RedHat 9 that are kernel sensitive [e.g, My Conexant HSF WinModem drivers, ALSA drivers, etc.] If anyone could help me on how to add FB support to RH 9 Kernel, I would really appreciate it.
