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?
