Yes, that works.
Does this have any drawbacks regarding the use of xorg? (I
haven't yet installed that...)
I can confirm this problem exists on Sunblade100 with the 2.6.18-3 (Mon
4 Dec) and the same fix works.
:: my stuff ::
I'm not able to boot a sunblade150. i'm using (what i assume is) an
older install cd (20061111), and I'm not entirely sure what kernel it
uses. i think its a 2.6.17-* kernel.
I'm hoping someone can look at what i entered and tell me how I'm
passing the parameters wrong. Or tell me to use a newer cd :)
