fbdev not seeing full memory

fbdev not seeing full memory

Why does the fbdev driver not see all the memory on my video card?  I have
a MPACT 2 chip with 4MB of video memory but fbdev only reports seeing
1536K. Is this a limitation of fbdev?

1. To FBDEV or not to FBDEV ?

Hi all,

I have integrated motherboard PCI video that is only identified as:

It works with the Mach64 server.

But I received a recommendation from mandrake support to use the FBDev server.
(Meanwhile I got the Mach64 server working.)

So what are the pros and cons?  Any reason to change?
