Does anyone have some "/etc/fb.modes" file with some default settings
around? I can´t seem to make the correct entries there. Or does anyone
know how to convert X modelines to fbset modelines easily?
Also would others also like to have the penguin (or penguins on dual
systems) stay at the top, maybe together with a xosview next to it (or
inbetween for dual systems)?
May the Source be with you.
