i have been having a great deal of difficulty with
my Nvidia Geforce2MX (by MSI) with the fb drivers for
kernels greater than 2.4.1.
i set my vga=791 from the lilo.conf file. upon
booting, the system attempts to change to this mode,
but fails and reverts to the standard mode (80x25),
but with a tux logo at the top left. other modes
(vga=6) for example fail similarly.
the fun doesn't stop there. my machine locks up
completely if i start X, switch to tty1-6 and then try
to get back into X (tty7).
this problem doesn't happen with v2.4.1 of the
kernel. can anyone help me out here?
