Enable KMS in Micro Core 6.1 for high resolution console
« on: March 13, 2015, 07:58:32 AM »
Ive been trying to find some documentation on this all morning. for the moment I am booting with vga=305, which works for now. but i'd really like to be using KMS instead. is there a document somewhere on how to enable it? when i boot without the vga option, it boots in to a standard 80x24 or w/e console

Thanks

does loading the graphics-KERNEL extension help?

You get KMS automatically by loading the graphics-KERNEL and possibly firmware on boot. Radeons need firmware at least.
The only barriers that can stop you are the ones you create yourself.
