Re: No offb in kernel-image-2.4.16-powerpc

Unfortunately, like 2.4.12, although CONFIG_FB_OF=y, it behaves as if there is no offb!

Found the problem. In offb_init(), somewhere between 2.4.8 and 2.4.12, the normal bootx way to initialize the video has been surrounded by
which is not set in the Debian kernel-image packages.

I'm not going to suggest that we reinstate that flag (just reread the archives, particularly from this past February, not a good thing). But in general, why is that test there? Do the tests for bootx at the start of that function (prom_num_displays == 0 && boot_infos != 0) not work?

In summary, is BootX/ofonly going to be unsupported by the Debian kernel-image packages, or is there some way to make it work?
