I'm trying to set up a framebuffer.

however, when I try to run fbset it says
open /dev/fb0: No such device

What did I miss?

Let's ask the moronic question first: you ARE root, aren't you?

I ask because I recall fbset not emitting a good error message if it can't open the fb device, which it can't do if you're not root.
