wich framebuffer?


Hallo!

I'm using the VESA driver with a "VGA compatible controller: Matrox Graphics,
Inc. MGA G400 AGP (rev 85)" . How do I determine which frammebuffer is
actually in use?

thanks for helping.

As I understand you want to know what are the settings of FrameBuffer? Well you can look for it in such files as lilo.conf in /etc. There are framebuffer setting.
here is VESA frame buffering
Code:
 
                            Vesa setting table
Color                   | 640x480  800x600  1024x768 1280x1024
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
256        (8 bits)  |  769          771         773              775
32000    (15 bits)|  784          787         790              793
65000    (16 bits)|  785          788         791              794
16.7 mil. (24 bits)|  786          789         792              795
now add a setting to your lilo.conf:
vga=792 (for 1024x768 and 24b.)

lilo -v
