SubjectRe: Linux-2.1.125 ... pre-2.2 imminent
In lists.linux.kernel you write:

Oops, works fine here...

Is vesafb compiled in? The video mode selection code _allways_ happily
switches to graphics mode if you tell him to do so (even 2.0.x does :-)
Without vesafb configured in you'll have a black screen then...

If vesafb is in: Could you email me the vesafb boot messages?
