I reported a problem previously about problems with colors in text console
under kernels 2.1.132 and 2.2.0-pre3. Now I've discovered that this problem
disappears when I compile for "Generic" rather than "PC164".
To me it looks like some sort of initialization of the graphics card
(palette registers?) is (incorrectly) not included when systype PC164 is
selected. Ideas anyone?
Card is generic S3 (Trio64V+)
Mobo is PC164 (Durango, 366 MHz)
MILO from RedHat 5.2 CD (with my previous MILO 2.1.132 wouldn't boot at all)
Compiler + utils: whatever comes with RedHat 5.2
Also, can anyone tell me more about this framebuffer stuff? What's this
talk about a penguin? Is it in any way useful in this configuration, or,
what should I upgrade to to make it useful?
