I've got the video card set right in the kernel but screen goes blank during bootup. First I see the boot messages for about a second then it goes blank, but I hear the drive moving and can tell it boots up ok, even without video.
Any idea on a fix? Thanks.
Do you have the vga=773 thing appended to your kernel line? (assuming you're using grub). I forget what the equivalent thing is in lilo but it's a vga= line. If so try removing it and/or setting it to vga=normal. Just a guess.
I turned off frame buffer option in kernel and video is ok now. thanks.
