SubjectRe: VESA Framebuffer dead in 2.6.0-test1
I have the same problem. It boots but I have no console. In 2.5 there was
an item 'enable virtual console' (in Character Devices) which I had
enabled, and the boot console was showing. I didn't see this option
displayed when I configured 2.6 from scratch (CONFIG_VT stuff)
