Bug#239914: #239914: fbtv doesn't work with kernel 2.6

Package: fbtv
Followup-For: Bug #239914

Ran into this bug on a system I'm setting up to be tv box that
hasn't got email or 'reportbug'.  Stats are...

Debian 'stable'.  Vid card:

    lspci | grep VGA
    0000:01:00.0 VGA compatible controller: nVidia Corporation NV5M64 [RIVA TNT2 Model 64/Model 64 Pro] (rev 15)


    % cat /proc/version
    Linux version 2.6.8-3-686 (pbuilder@dl360-g3) (gcc version 3.3.5 (Debian 1:3.3.5-13)) #1 Thu Sep 7 03:38:22 UTC 2006

I tested two frame buffer kernel modules:

    kernel-image-2.6.8-3-686: /lib/modules/2.6.8-3-686/kernel/drivers/video/riva/rivafb.ko
    kernel-image-2.6.8-3-686: /lib/modules/2.6.8-3-686/kernel/drivers/video/vga16fb.ko

Ran 'fbtv' v3.94-1.  Both modules gave this error:

    ioctl FBIOGET_CON2FBMAP: Invalid argument

Hope this helps...
