I am using the most recent -current (that fixes the libpng "ratness" described in the ChangeLog 8-) and the Intel Framebuffer setup is annoying me. I specify vga=normal in LILO and to my knowledge I am not asking Intel Framebuffer modules to load at boot (and intelfb is blacklisted).
It's annoying because it makes the text microscopic. However, the machine works great in -Current so I can't complain. Graphics work fine and so does X, it's just annoying.
This is my Sony Vaio VGN-C140G detailed here:
I had tried previously blacklisting inteldrmfb as well (the -Current release right before the libpng fix) and that made no difference.
I found all binaries with "intel" in their name and read the manual pages but didn't find anything useful for possibly manually setting the mode back to something equivalent to vga=normal.
By the way, can someone please change my user name on this forum to "Robert Delahunt" or "radelahunt"? Thanks....
