RE: SVGATextMode on Neomagic 256AV(NM2200) ?
I had the same problem with my TP600 and NM chip. Now I don't use
svgatextmode at all.
Just add a line to /etc/lilo.conf, like
This is 1204x768, 16bpp. (see the table below)
Video Modes 640x480 800x600 1024x768 1280x1024
8 bpp (256 colors) 769 771 773 775
16 bpp (64K colors) 785 788 791 794
32 bpp (16M colors) 786 789 792 795
Don't forget to use /sbin/lilo.
