fbcon and Fire GL1kPro

Post by Jan-Frode Myklebu » Sun, 29 Nov 1998 04:00:00

Has anybody gotten the fbcon to work with a Diamond Fire GL1000 Pro? I've
been trying, and trying... but no penguins appear, and lilo woun't let me
enter any special modes except the ones I have without fbcon compiled in...

Help anyone?



1. kernel 2.4.18 endianness logical mistakes correction on fbcon-cfb2.c and fbcon-cfb4.c


2 small patchs to apply to:

drivers\video\fbcon-cf4.c o

This patchs correct the endianness logical of nibbletab, the first table is
u_char mades so no endian needed and the second swap correctly bytes in
LITTLE_ENDIAN. (old version swap half bytes instead of bytes).
