Description rudi 2003-10-25 23:40:17 EDT
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.4.1) Gecko/20031023

Description of problem:
The 2.6 kernel is not compiled with CONFIG_FRAMEBUFFER_CONSOLE enabled.
I am not sure if this was simply overlooked or if it was done on purpose
to avoid some severe bug.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
kernel-2.6.0-0.test8.1.66

How reproducible:
Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Enable the framebuffer in the kernel boot command line
    

Actual Results:  Behold the sheer beauty of a completely blank screen, because
code to
support the console over fb hasn't been compiled into the kernel. Wait
for X to finally offer you some degree of interaction with the machine.

Expected Results:  A shiny boot logo, the usual boot blurb and a working console.
