I am having trouble getting the framebuffer console working on my box. During a new install, I select it and it works; after I recompile my kernel using 2.4.5, if I don't set vga = ask in lilo.conf, I don't get any video. Anyone know how to fix this?
If I change the vga= (anything except ask) then I get no video at all. I have lilo set up to boot my old kernel as well and if I set the vga = 791 then that one will work with the framebuffer, but not the new kernel. When I recompiled my kernel, there was no option for framebuffer in the Console area.
