Re: Re: Framebuffer and Kernel issues

So I've been trying to figure out the console framebuffer still without success. I have some interesting information though. Whenever I load the vesafb module at the command prompt by doing a "modprobe vesafb" I get this error (I've already loaded fbcon, and the three cfb* modules):

vesafb: probe of vesafb0 failed with error -6

Does anyone know what this means? I googled on it and it came up with a few hits but they were no help. When I try to do an fbset after loading the vesafb module it still says "/dev/fb0 not found". I'm at a loss. I found out something else interesting. When I unload the vesafb module it gives me this:

Device 'vesafb0' does not have a release() function, it is broken and must be fixed.
Badness in device_release at drivers/base/core.c:85

Call Trace:<ffffffff801b96e4>{kobject_cleanup+100} <ffffffff801b9740>{kobject_release+0} <ffffffff801b9a8e>{kref_put+126} <ffffffffa06e0170>{:vesafb:vesafb_exit+16} <ffffffff80149292>{sys_delete_module+354} <ffffffff801606a2>{do_munmap+290} <ffffffff8016071a>{sys_munmap+90} <ffffffff8011171a>{system_call+126}

I don't know if anyone cares about this because mostly when you have the vesafb module loaded you won't be unloading it but I dunno, maybe it's another clue.
