Ok, I tried changing the modes to "current" and 'fbset
1024x768-anything' works fine, I'm using "-100" right now. However fbset
only effects the current tty. It doesn't effect tty7. So X still runs at
As I said in the past, setting the driver to "tdfx" causes the X server
to segfault (signal 11) at startup (see list archives.) When I built
this kernel, I said yes to tdfx framebuffer.. but how do I check if it's
being used? 'cat /proc/fb' shows:
0 3Dfx Voodoo3
1 OFfb /bandit/3Dfx,Voodoo3
Looking at that I'd gather it's using the tdfxfb driver.
As I said in a previous thread, I'd LOVE to get the fdfx driver to work.
So if anyone can help figure out why it segfaults, I'd be very happy -
especially since the fbdev isn't accelerated...
