I am facing simila problem and tried the fix suggested
Rather, I don't know whether I have applied the fix xorrectly.
Could anyone please explain how to fix this problem.


And now, an X question :-)

I'm getting this on startup of the X server,

        FBIOPUT_VSCREENINFO: Invalid argument

        Fatal server error:
        AddScreen/ScreenInit failed for driver 0

Any ideas? Ran the release note patch, and upgraded to 2.4.16-pa24 to no

avail. X server is rev 4.1.0-9.0.1.

I was having the same problem on a B132L+. This fix got me up and going.

Thanx Christian!
