Subject2.6.0-test3: matrox framebuffer halts booting?
If I try to boot a self-compiled kernel with the matrox framebuffer, the
booting process halts after 'Freeing unused kernel memory'.

After that, the system isn't hung (numlock works, ctrl-alt-del works)
but it also doesn't boot (not reachable over the network, blindly
logging in doesn't work). Before that, the framebuffer seems to work - I
see a resolution change and a penguin boot-logo.

I can compile kernels with matroxfb for my other machine just fine - and
I can't understand what option I'm missing, and I don't see any relevant
difference with my other machine's .config.

This is a Gigabyte GA-6BDX dual P3/450 board, with a PCI Matrox
Millennium I card.
I'm trying to boot with

append="video=matroxfb:vesa:0x1B8,fv:72"

in my lilo.conf.

Thanks for any hints,
Jurriaan
