Subject: [PATCH] drivers/video/vesafb.c, kernel 2.6.0-test1
Date: Sun, 20 Jul 2003 04:11:33 +0200 (CEST)	[thread overview]
Message-ID: <> (raw)

This is a trivial patch I made against the 2.6.0-test1 kernel to fix the
"vesafb: abort, cannot ioremap video memory 0x8000000 @ 0xe8000000" error
on systems with 1 GB RAM or more trying to use the framebuffer.

The trivial fix was mentioned on this list in this message:
