SubjectRe: KERNEL BUG: console not working in linux
Problem solved

I had to bypass the following instructions in arch/i386/boot/setup.S

# You must preserve the other bits here. Otherwise embarrasing
# things
# like laptops powering off on boot happen. Corrected version by
# Kira
# Brown from Linux 2.2
inb $0x92, %al #
orb $02, %al # "fast A20" version
outb %al, $0x92 # some chips have only this

Then my system worked without problems.

Now what I ask is:
1) Why did they disable my videocard ?
2) Whate are they supposed to do?
3) Would you answer me this time ?

Many thanks to Rasmus, Albert & Jo Geraerts, the only three who answered
me. I would have expected more response from the list, but it seems the
old gold days are over
