Nice patch! This is the first success I've had with vesafb-tng. :D

I initially tried 1280x1024-32@75, which worked fine on booting but after X started (nvidia) it flickered and was somewhat corrupted when switching back to console.

Next I tried 1600x1200-32@70, which is the same mode I use in X. I was a little surprised to find that it seems to work better since I've never had much luck with anything higher than 1280x1024 in fremebuffer. The only problem here is that it only gives me 60Hz rather than the 70 I asked for. I'll have to experiment further with different options and modes to find one that works just right.

Much better results than I expected even so. Thanks!

the problem with vesafb-tng is
X and bootsplash make the refresh rate 60 again

you can solve it by creating /etc/fb.modes

Code:
wget http://dev.gentoo.org/~spock/projects/vesafb-tng/modeline2fb.pl
chmod +x modeline2fb.pl
xvidtune -show | ./modeline2fb.pl >> /etc/fb.modes


then go to console and use fbset
Code:
fbset 1280x1024

or any mode you are using in X

DONT TRY TO RUN IT WITH BOOSPLASH IT CAN HANG YOUR KERNEL

nice patch, but IMHO it should include net.patch from bk-15 as well... Many users reported slugish net performance and it just should be there. Actual patch is shown in the original "2.6.7-love5 aka interim" thread http://forums.gentoo.org/viewtopic.php?t=192578&start=50 by evermind

just my 2 cents :wink:

I could swear that your post said few minutes before something like "I have the patch, just need a place to host it". That's what You call a job quick done :). Configuring and comiling now :)

How am I supposed to do the patching?

I ran
Code:
bzcat 2.6.7-love5-update2.diff.bz2 | patch -p1

And that gave me a couple of questions about reversing, I answered yes, but most of these failed..

edit: I had the np-bootsplash patch applied, removed that and it applied cleanly.

compiled, all patches apllied cleanly, i had to say "y" on the very first patch (asked me if I want to reverse it).
About everything I checked works, but the vesa-tng. I used 0.9-r1-rc1 so far with no problems (however had to turn off bootsplash). Present version gives me some interlanced mode at 87Hz... I did everything like last time, so it may be a version specific error.


Peace
:D

Do tell. You mean you've got it to stop reverting to 60Hz after X has started? What do I have to do?

-3 doesn't work for me at all. :cry:

Using
Code:
video=vesafb:mtrr,ywrap,1600x1200-32@70
as I had earlier it was fine until X started but afterwards the console screen was extremely corrupted. The text was being displayed, but it was spewed diagonally across the top half of the screen, with garbage in the bottom half. I tried to reboot, but it seemed to hang. :( I couldn't tell for sure what was going on since the text was illegible.

I also tried
Code:
video=vesafb:mtrr,ywrap,1280x1024-32@85
but that worked even less well, not displaying anything and causing my monitor to lose sync and go into powersave mode.

Bad all around for me for whatever reason. :x

I am having an issue with the framebuffer and my ATI 8500 AIW but I posted here. I have only seen references to nVidia cards... does anyone have a radeon card working properly? If so, how did you configure the kernel's fb support?
