Bug#279648: bug still present in 2.6.11
Followup-For: Bug #279648
this bug is over 1/2year old and still present in 2.6.11.
Is it possible to upgrade this bug at least to important (if not grave?)
-- having no display on bootup is in my opinion a really bad bug, and
not everyone knows, that booting with vga=normal is a workaround.
Interesting here is also, that this bug is already localized in one file
(modular-vesafb.dpatch) since over a 1/2 year but not fixed. Is there any
additional information I could give to help fixing this bug?
Or is there any progress, the (many) submitters should know?
Related (if not the same) bugs: #282234 #309682
PS: I have a savage-card. I've tried vesafb and savagefb but both
drivers produce the blank screen on bootup.
