    Default Radeon 9000 Pro and Framebuffer

    Bonjour.

    Trying to set up the framebuffer with my Radeon 9000 Pro on a 2.5.69
    Kernel (Debian sid). But it seems the framebuffer can not be
    initialized, as the resolution does not change.

    Kernel-config:

    #
    # Graphics support
    #
    CONFIG_FB=y
    CONFIG_VIDEO_SELECT=y
    CONFIG_FB_RADEON=y

    #
    # Console display driver support
    #
    CONFIG_VGA_CONSOLE=y
    CONFIG_DUMMY_CONSOLE=y
    CONFIG_FRAMEBUFFER_CONSOLE=y
    CONFIG_PCI_CONSOLE=y
    CONFIG_FONTS=y
    CONFIG_FONT_8x8=y
    CONFIG_FONT_8x16=y

    In my lilo.conf I got:

    append="video=radeonfb:1280x1024-1660"

    Also tried "radeon" instead of "radeonfb" and different resolutions.

    The (hopefully) most important parts from dmesg:

    I'm not shure, but there is a similar higmem-bug in radeonfb as in
    vesafb. Try booting with mem=845M or something like that.

    Ah, well, this seemed to be the problem. Now I got still some other
    annoying problem:

    In my lilo.conf I got now: append="mem=840M video=radeonfb:1280x102460"

    My display (17" TFT) is capable of this resolution but when I boot now,
    I get a blank screen and a "Out of range"-message on my OSD. I can then
    log in "blindly" and use

    $ fbset 1280x1024-60

    to set the display to the wanted resolution. Anyone knows why the
    resolution cannot be set on system boot (I can use e.g. 1024x768, but
    that's not what my display is made for)?

    dmesg says:

    Kernel command line: BOOT_IMAGE=Debian ro root=302 mem=840M video=radeonfb:1280x102460
