 said the man who first mentioned X.  You made out that framebuffers
in the kernel were a waste of time for people using ssh or xorg.  If
all you ever do is ssh to your LFS box, then yes, a framebuffer is
wasted.  I was pointing out that for xorg on most modern hardware a
framebuffer should be used.

 In the past, I've intended not to reply to anything you post -
the time I spend replying normally brings me no benefit, and my
replies to you apparently bring you no benefit either.  This time,
I intend to stick to that intention.
