Hi Michal,

I've just tested uvesafb on my workstation ( which has a really old
GeForce2 MX 400 Nvidia card ) and it didn't worked here.

If I remember right vesafb-ntg worked here and vesafb works for sure :)

Here the error from dmesg :

....


[ 37.397298] uvesafb: Getting VBE info block failed (eax=0x4f00, err=-3)
[ 37.397358] uvesafb: vbe_init() failed with -22
[ 37.397411] uvesafb: probe of uvesafb.0 failed with error -22


....

Here some infos I got with read-edid[1] tool:


./get-edid: get-edid version 1.4.1
