Hi,

I have just installed Gentoo with ZFS and started to playing around, so consider me a noob :)
I was testing setting up a boot splash, so i wanted to enable the "userspace VESA VGA support" option in menuconfig, however i do not have that option.
Kernel is 3.5.7 and i was using https://github.com/ryao/zfs-overlay/blob/master/zfs-install when i set it all up.

grep -i uvesa /usr/src/linux/.conf also not showing anything.

any clues?

Best regards
Kim

kim997,

Welcome to Gentoo.

The menuconfig search (press /) shows
Code:
 Symbol: FB_UVESA [=n]                                                                                     │ 
  │ Type  : tristate                                                                                          │ 
  │ Prompt: Userspace VESA VGA graphics support                                                               │ 
  │   Defined at drivers/video/Kconfig:737                                                                    │ 
  │   Depends on: HAS_IOMEM [=y] && FB [=y] && CONNECTOR [=y]                                                 │ 
  │   Location:                                                                                               │ 
  │     -> Device Drivers                                                                                     │ 
  │       -> Graphics support                                                                                 │ 
  │         -> Support for frame buffer devices (FB [=y])                                                     │ 
  │   Selects: FB_CFB_FILLRECT [=y] && FB_CFB_COPYAREA [=y] && FB_CFB_IMAGEBLIT [=y] && FB_MODE_HELPERS [=y]


So its still there in 3.6.2 gentoo-sources.
Notice the Depends on: line. You probably have one of those options off, so its hidden in menuconfig for you.
