Re: Kernel 2.4.xx to kernel 2.5.xx
Are you sure rivafb in 2.5 has better support than in 2.4? I thought it
was rather the other way around, but I may be wrong.
No, I'm not sure. But anyway, it would be a lot of work to
backport because of the switch Paul mentioned. I guess I
will try to get the information on the drivers and try to
patch 2.4 instead. The remaining problem is the kind of
problem you'd expect to find a clean and short solution.
Anyway, I couldn't even get the new kernel to boot and it
broke some things. Like /dev/null was missing. It is
incredible the kind of things that fail when /dev/null is a
file and not a device. I couldn't even ssh into the box :(
 the screen is all bright orange whenever X (or the
console in text mode) tries to blank it. Everything else
works alright but as the machine should be on all the time I
don't want to risk burn-in, if that happens in LCD too.
