It is as though the Video select option isn't handling the kernel arg, since
vga=ask doesn't present my with a selection menu either.
Has vesafb or Video_select support somehow been dropped in the latest stable
I have built the kernel on multiple machines with the following .config, and
have resorted to downgrading my kernel by systematically decrementing versions,
I've gone back as far as 2.4.14 so far, with no luck in initializing the vesafb.
I have the vesafb working under 2.4.5, but really would like to avoid going
that far back.
Following is the FB specific portion of my .config
# Console drivers
# Frame-buffer support
