< http://distro.ibiblio.org/pub....les.tgz >
This is to make the module available as early as possible
2) boot with video=XXXfb: xres x yres - bpp @ refresh
For example, video=neofb:1024x768-16@75
If you are using a laptop, using video=XXfb is usually enough
This should be enough. In some rare cases, or if you want to avoid the flicker when switching from vga to your res, you'll need to recompile the kernel.
