Enabling frame buffer to boot ...
When i boot my system (Red Hat lInux 7.2, Kerenl 2.4.7-10, Intel(R) Celeron(TM) CPU 1000 MHZ), the sysytem diaplays the GRUB Version as 0.90 (639K lower / 129024K upper memory). In my system in "/etc" directory i can able to find only "lilo.conf.anaconda" file and the file "lilo.conf" is not available. so i appendded the following lines in the file "lilo.conf.anaconda".
append="video=vesa:ywrap,mtrr" // line 1
vga=791 // line 2
'ywrap' enables panning with wraparound.
'mtrr' enables setting caching type for the frame buffer to write-combining.
I appended line 1 and line 2 in "lilo.conf.anaconda", but still when i execute the program the run time error occurs. But as u said i did not compiled the kernel. is this may be the problem?
Now since my system use GRUB to load, do i have to compile the kernel after making changes in "lilo.conf.anaconda" file ? If so then how can we compile a kernel ? If not how to allow the system to use frame buffer to boot?
Help me to solve the aforesaid problem.
