    Getting the frame buffer to work


    I want my console frame buffer, but when I compile the linux kernel I get a screwy screen. What things do I need to include to make sure that I can have my framebuffered screen. Also will the Nvidia utils compile withe the new kernel.

    When I compile the frambuffer module into the kernel and i boot with the command vga = 791 I get a black screen. But if I boot with command vga = normall It works fine. does anybody know whats going on.

    I'm running slackware 9.1 and I'm using a geforce 2 32 mb card.

    thanx for reading

    OK I fixed it. For anybody that might have this problem just compile in the vesa driver. Don't worry about any other driver. Thats what did it for me.
