Ok, I wasn't aware of this difference, thanks. I put "options VESA" in my kernel config, as I already mentioned in my first post. When I search through dmesg, I read this:
> VESA: v2.0, 8192k memory, flags:0x0, mode table:0xc0378382 (1000022) > VESA: S3 Incorporated. M7 BIOS But the last two lines read: > module_register: module vesa already exists! > linker_file_sysinit "vesa.ko" failed to register! 17 Btw, it's a laptop (Toshiba), the graphic card is S3 Savage/IX-MV.
