Re: recompiled kernel, now no framebuffer
Well, the 5th times the charm I guess. It is now working. To get it
working, I said "Y" to the following options using menuconfig:
Support for framebuffer devices
VESA VGA graphics support
VGA text console
Video mode selection support
Framebuffer console support
Select compiled in fonts
VGA 8x8 font
VGA 8x16 font
I said "N" to all framebuffer device drivers except VESA.
I also added a "video" boot option to the kernel. My grub menu.lst
kernel entry is now:
kernel /boot/vmlinuz-2.6.7-win4lin root=/dev/hda1 ro hdc=scsi
I got the video options from gentoo documentation. Hope this helps
anyone else having the same problem.

Did you find any solution to this problem? I have recompiled my kernel
4 times now with various configurations to try and get the framebuffer
working, but I always get a blank screen.
I lost my framebuffer on 2.6 upgrade. I imported a 2.4.21 kernel with
framebuffer support so it was odd that it quit working. In my case
the solution was simple -- I somehow had not configured VGA_CONSOLE,
VIDEO_SELECT and FRAMEBUFFER_CONSOLE.
