Description of problem:
We cannot enable frame buffer on IA64. Therefore we cannot use
bogl-bterm to display unicode text on a console.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. set linux vga=ask as boot parameter
2. run /usr/bin/bterm
We cannot use frame buffer and bogl-bterm.
We can use bogl-bterm.

The Linux kernel currently contains CONFIG_VIDEO_SELECT ("vga=...")
and vesafb support only for x86 and x86_64; in fact only a few
framebuffers (cirrusfb, kyrofb and rivafb) are included in the RHEL
kernel for ia64.
Are you planning to contain CONFIG_VIDEO_SELECT and vesafb support for
ia64 in RHEL4?
Do we have to use above graphic cards, cirrus, kyro and riva, to use a
framebuffer on RHEL4 ia64?
That's a question/feature request for the kernel maintainers.

Setting this bug report to closed. This is a feature request and as such must be
requested using Issue Tracker and then handled from there. At this point in
time, this has missed the RHEL4 U1 window and if the proper request is opened in
IT with all the required information using the new feature request template in
time would be considered for RHEL4 U2.
This is what can happen when the proper cc's are not included in a bug report as
I was not aware of this at all until last week.
