I am using a NVIDrIA-card GeForce 7600 GT with vanilla 220.127.116.11 linux
kernel and grub boot loader.
The commandline to boot the kernel is:
kernel (hd0,0)/vmlinuz-2627012 rootfstpye=reiserfs root=/dev/sda3 ro vga=31B.
This works like a charm...but the resulting resolution a little too
So I replaced "vga=31B" with "vga=ask" and after rebooting press
RETURN to see all available modes. I replaced "vga=31B" with "vga=317"
(both were VESA modes, if I rember correctly.
After rebooting, the screen remains black as long as X were started.
Why does "vga=31B" does work and "vga=317" does not despite the fact
both were reported as working modes by grub.
Ah! By the way: Interrupting grub, and editing the commandline for
the kernel boot and setting "vga=317" _by hand_ works like a
Any help will be very appreciated.
