[Bug 129910] Re: Blank ttys when using vesafb (vga=xxx)

My solution under Intrepid:
added vga=0x0323 to defoptions
xres=1024 was: 1440
yres=768 was: 900
Note: vga=0x0365 did not work even though my default display is
1440x900. During reboot this produced a screen of vga mode options for
me to choose from, and an option to scan. I selected "scan" and the
result did not offer any modes in the 1440x900 resolution. I ended up
selecting the best 1024x768 mode available.
I did not need to mess with modules vga16fb and vesafb in any manner.
I am wondering if during the installation of Intrepid, the system was
unable to properly detect my resolution and so excluded the vga line
from the menu.lst file? Just a guess...probably wrong though. Based
off of what I observed today, I can't help but think that this bug has a
hook into the default display resolution and the ATI fglrx driver.
For the moment my TTYs are working.
