I figured someone else would get this, but guess not. Your confusing
frameBUFFER with frameGRABBER. framebuffer is the graphics card... a
framegrabber would be some sort of video input device.
If you do not have the appropriate framebuffer support compiled in,
you will not be able to use the keyboard and mouse... although I'd
have thought PROM console would work also (albeit slowly).
