SubjectPROBLEM: Framebuffer does not handle kernel parameter when compiled as a module
I have two almost identical computers with different graphic cards (ATI
RageII, Matrox G200). I'd like to have the framebuffer devices compiled
as modules, but then the kernel parameters from lilo (i.e. append =
"video=atyfb:800x600@72") doesn't work. Afterwards switching with fbset
works. It seems as if the switching of the resolution is handled before
the corresponding module is loaded. Is there any solution to this
problem (besides compiling into the kernel) or is this a bug?
