I can't seem to find this kernel option: "<*> Userspace VESA VGA graphics support"

Did it change to a different name?

I still see it here. Perhaps you could tell us what kernel version you are using and why you want to enable this feature?

The config option is named CONFIG_FB_UVESA, you can press / in menuconfig to search for it.

The search results will also list the dependencies which must be enabled first before this option shows up in menuconfig.

I'm having the same issue. A search indicates it depends on HAS_IOMEM, FB, and CONNECTOR. I've found fb and connector, when doing a search for has_iomem doesn't have a location listed. Does anybody know where has_iomem is?

Twenynge,

Its an arch dependant setting. You either have it or not.
What arch are you on?

On a PC you may be able to influence in with a BIOS setting.
