Description Gerald Teschl 2001-08-02 11:31:10 EDT
I have the following entry in my lilo.conf
-------------
image=/boot/vmlinuz-2.4.6-3.1
        label=linux
        initrd=/boot/initrd-2.4.6-3.1.img
        read-only
        root=/dev/hda3
        append="vga=791"
----------------
If I run lilo everything looks fine, but upon reboot the kernel does
not boot into fb mode. If I type "linux vga=791" at the lilo promt
it works fine.

This is very important to me since my vga card won't work otherwise.
And having to type "linux vga=791" at every boot is a pain.

Maybe this is also related to #50695.

I've never had append="vga=foo" work for me in lilo.conf, always using just
vga=foo instead
Comment 2 Doug Ledford 2001-08-02 14:22:26 EDT
If the vga= option works instead of the append usage method, then I'm going to
close this out.  I don't think the vga= option was ever supposed to work in an
append= line by my reading of the lilo docs.

Sorry, I messed up.
