Not able to add vesa capability to amd64 platform, either by recompiling
the kernel or loading a module.

vidcontrol -i mode output only shows one mode available.

My graphics card is an agp-based radeon 9600 pro which is recognized by xorg/xfree86 when ' device agp' is added to the kernel.

Otherwise 5.x amd64 just gets better.  Many thanks for such goog work.

Not able to add vesa to the kernel configuration file.
