Kernel Upgrade = console framebuffer doesn't work
First, forgive the lack of specific details I am able to give. I don't have my box handy here at work.
I use Slackware 10.1. I just upgraded to the newest 2.6 kernel the other day. I previously had lilo configured to pass something like vga=771 to the kernel at boot. It gave me a nice 1024x768x256 resolution for textmode. I liked it. Ever since I upgraded my kernel, this no longer works. The screen just goes black after LILO does its thing. But, if I have my default runlevel set to 4, KDE eventually boots up. Also, if I set vga=normal, I can get a normal, boring textmode just fine.
I based my new kernel configuration off my previous one, but I am told that's not 100% foolproof. Did I miss something? Should I have enabled an option that I didn't or vice versa? I muck around in the console a lot and I'd like to get my custom framebuffer back.
