           Summary: [2.6.12-7.11] vga16fb makes the screen flicker
           Product: Ubuntu
           Version: unspecified
          Platform: i386
        OS/Version: Linux
            Status: UNCONFIRMED
          Severity: normal
          Priority: P2
         Component: linux
        AssignedTo: ben.collins at ubuntu.com
        ReportedBy: tiagomatos at gmail.com
         QAContact: kernel-bugs at lists.ubuntu.com

With this kernel vga16fb is automatically loaded:

Aug 23 02:37:50 hive kernel: [4294670.543000] vga16fb: initializing
Aug 23 02:37:50 hive kernel: [4294670.543000] vga16fb: mapped to 0xc00a0000
Aug 23 02:37:50 hive kernel: [4294670.543000] fb0: VGA16 VGA frame buffer device
Aug 23 02:37:50 hive kernel: [4294670.631000] Console: switching to colour frame
buffer device 80x30

but on this laptop the result is the LCD flickering everytime one is on the
console. Besides the LCD is only actually displaying 25 lines so that the last 5
lines are not visible.
