Need Help with Radeonfb - Linux Setup, Configuration & Administration

Hallo Newsgroup. I have a Debian with a 2.4.21 Kernel and a ATI RADEON 9100. If I enable VESA support for the console, dEverything is working with the switch vga=792 i.e. in Lilo. Then I get a 1024x768 resolution at 60hz. If I compile Ati Radeon fbsupport into the Kernel and try to start it via append="radeonfb:1280x1024-1675", the system will boot, but only in 640x480. And fbset -i says /dev/fb0 no such device. Can anybody tell me what I am doing wrong or has anybody make this card using framebuffers with the radeon drivers? Thnx for help X'post 2 comp.os.linux.setup ...

    Hallo Newsgroup.
    I have a Debian with a 2.4.21 Kernel and a ATI RADEON 9100. If I enable
    VESA support for the console, dEverything is working with the switch
    vga=792 i.e. in Lilo. Then I get a 1024x768 resolution at 60hz.
    If I compile Ati Radeon fbsupport into the Kernel and try to start it via
    append="radeonfb:1280x1024-1675", the system will boot, but only in
    640x480. And fbset -i says /dev/fb0 no such device.
    Can anybody tell me what I am doing wrong or has anybody make this card
    using framebuffers with the radeon drivers?
    Thnx for help
