Do you really need to specify vmode and cmode? I use a
9500/180MP with a imstt card from a 9600 and just compiling
the right drivers on the kernel seems to do it. I don't even
specify the "video=" option on the kernel line.
OTOH, it seems that something is weird: I have to include
other framebuffer drivers (like control etc) in the compiled
kernel for Linux to identify the card correctly as a imstt.
Otherwise, the monitor stays in standby mode.
