Description Derek Tattersall 2000-03-07 12:03:49 UTC
After enabling framebuffer in lilo, and rebooting, running fbset from the
command line gives an error message of unable to open /dev/fb0.  The
devices are in /dev.  This happens on two SMP machines running rc1.2, one
with an ATI card, one with a matrox card.
