571New kernel doesn't work with vga=791 in lilo.conf!?
- May 1, 2000Hi everyone..
I have a Latitude CPx H500GT, with Redhat 6.0 installed. Earlier I
having the aame X cofiguration problems that some others were
having on this list and they were solved by adding the vga=791 line
the lilo.conf (thanks to the kind soul who found that solution!). At
this point I was using the 2.2.5 kernel that came with RH 6.0.
So I decided to build a new kernel for my machine. I made sure to
build the console drivers into the kernel so that I could still use
the vga mode line. However this new kernel refuses to work with the
same vga line. As soon as the boot process gets past the LILO: prompt
the screen flickers and goes blank. If I remove the vga= from the
lilo.conf it boots ok. Even vga=ask works but none of those options
result in a mode that I can run X in. If I boot with the old kernel,
which is the one that comes with RH 6.0, that accepts the vga=791 and
What am I doing wrong? Any ideas?
