Once again, you DO NOT NEED TO DO THIS! The B&W G3 now has video support.
If you've downloaded the latest kernel from my web-site, you can specify the
video mode you want from the kernel arguments of BootX. Add the following to you
That will give you 1024x768 @ 75Hz, w/32bpp. Piece of cake, no init'ing, no
rebooting, no running Xautoconfig.
The FAQ page at my site (http://www.inficad.com/~rshaw/g3_faq.shtml) also has the
reproduction of the vmode settings that are available. They work, and no running
of Xautoconfig is needed.
