    I tried this patch, but it crashed during boot.

    I have a
    01:00.0 VGA compatible controller: ATI Technologies Inc 3D Rage Pro AGP
    1X/2X (rev 5c)

    and use this in lilo.conf:

    This got me a 160x64 framebuffer with yellow text on
    blue background. Nice, but only got about 10 lines before
    the kernel hung. The disk light got stuck on and there were
    no response to things like sysrq.
    The few lines displayed was about the fb, drm, and finally
    the 3com network adapter. Then nothing more.

    2.5.49 without this patch works. I use devfs & preempt,
    the machine is UP and I use gcc-2.95.4 for compiling.
