RE: Laptop loses display



I found the video.S file in the kernel-source(gnna try 2.2.14), as to
what I NEED to change I am clueless.  Do you know where its docs are?
No I am not running xdm - the display turns off after the kernel's md
driver init and before the scsi init.  Perhaps all I need to do is
compile a kernel w/pout scsi in it....
