I know this is an old one but I can't find anything on Google. I have an
old S3 Aurora64V+ Videocard in my laptop and wish to use the vesafb to get
the lovely penguin and a 800x600 console. I'm pretty sure the card doesn't
support VESA 2.0 (only VESA 1.2) but I was told that there was a patch I
could apply to the kernel source prior to compilation that will sort this
Is this true?
Where can I get the patch and some instruction on how to apply it?
Oh yes, I'd need a patch for Kernel version 2.4.20 if possible as that is
what I'm running at the moment. If it's any help the laptop I'm using is a
Compaq Armada 7350MT.
