Description Till Maas 2007-08-31 15:38:16 UTC
Spec URL: http://till.fedorapeople.org/review/vbetool.spec
SRPM URL: http://till.fedorapeople.org/review/vbetool-0.7-1.fc7.src.rpm
vbetool uses lrmi in order to run code from the video BIOS. Currently, it is
able to alter DPMS states, save/restore video card state and attempt to
initialize the video card from scratch.

Comment 1 Jason Tibbitts 2007-08-31 15:42:31 UTC
Won't this conflict with the existing vbetool in pm-utils?

oh, I forgot to mention this here. vbetool will be removed from pm-utils, once
it is reviewed.
