Man page for fbdev is missing and amn page for fbset says it is obsolete
and unreliable.
Comment 1 Pekka Savola 2000-07-16 13:18:58 EDT
Still an issue.  The original 1-year old tarball has the same shortcomings though :)
Comment 2 Preston Brown 2001-03-23 16:48:15 EST
man page is now present, but it may still be outdated.
Comment 3 Alan Cox 2002-12-13 21:39:57 EST
Still true in 8.0 about obsolete page
Comment 4 Jindrich Novy 2004-10-12 06:35:31 EDT
Man page for fbdev is now present in recent distributions.

I contacted Geert Uytterhoeven (the fbset upstream maintainer) and he
wrote me that the fbset-2.1 release was the final one, so the
development of it was stopped. This is the reason why I'll close this
