Now this is the result on Linux 2.2

lug% cat /proc/fb
0 ATY Mach64

and on Linux 2.4

lug% cat /proc/fb
0 OFfb /pci@80000000/ATY,LTProParent@11/AT|

(for the latter, it occurs whether or not I include a yaboot directive

so ! what can be happening ? should I compile the 2.4 kernel with
different options, maybe ?

(in fact I'm using yaboot). Well the X server just does not start, or
messes up the screen, depending on the refresh values I have entered.
Basically it gives me the error message that you analysed earlier.
Nothing more, but it does prevent my running kmines ;-)
