Re: Another Grub question/problem

How do you start Linux via grub with frame buffer enabled?

On a system with a Matrox video card, I have got it going fine (with Matrox
FB driver).

However, on this computer, where I need to use the VESA driver, nothing
I have tried seems to work.

At the moment I have:

kernel (hd0,0)/boot/vmlinuz-2.2.17 root=/dev/hda1 video=0x319

still haven't tried 2.2.18. The video= options seems to be completely
ignored, and Linux boots up as if it wasn't there.
