Default Re: 1.0-7590 supports FBO (frame_buffer_object)

Ah thanks for posting the info. I was using vesafb-tng up until recently to solve the problem. Unfortunately vesafb-tng isn't compatible with x86_64 that i recently switched to.

Since my current solution (a hacked nvidiafb(rivafb replacement, in 2.6.12-rc+ ) and a modded nvidia ) is a not so good (since it'll probably break next "compile" time)...

>60Hz vesa-rrc (should also work on x86_64)
