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.
