Does anybody have any HOWTO information on using the frame buffer?
I would like to do startup and shutdown graphics screens.
I was installing Red Hat 7.0 this weekend and noticed something bad
about the installer. The Xconfigurator doesn't probe my card anymore
like v6.1 -&- 6.2. HA! I even used XF86Setup and it crapped out... just
a grey screen with the X for the mouse.
Which led me back to Frame Buffering....
From what I know about frame buffering, it allows the OS to access the
video card without having to use drivers.
WHICH MEANS: Any monitor or video card can be used and you get great
output. Switch monitors??? Doesn't matter...
QUESTION: Has anybody manually used frame buffering on their system and
can describe how they did it or point me to a great web site on how to
I have already checked out the HOW-TO but was unfortunate that it was
so dry that it changed the humidity in my house.
