I am having some difficulty getting the aty128fb to work with the ATI
Rage 128 Mobility LF adapter in my Dell Inspiron 5000e. The display
is a 1600x1200 flat panel. Passing video=aty128fb:1600x1200-16bpp@...
on the kernel command line causes the screen to crash and the machine
to lockup. This occurs as soon as the fb device is initilialized
during kernel loading.
That 1600x1200 setting is what I use successfully in X. Other things,
such as video=aty128fb, or nothing at all also cause the same screen
crash and hard lockup.
I have this problem through at least 2.4.10. I tried building with
the debug option enabled, but aty128fb.c does not compile. Any advice
would be greatly appreciated. If there is any information which would
be useful that I have not provided, please let me know.
