Linux kernel Framebuffer driver

Works perfectly with the NeoMagic Framebuffer Driver in the Kernel 2.6.12 using the following configuration (Debian GNU/Linux "etch" defaults):

#
# Console display driver support
#
CONFIG_VGA_CONSOLE=y
CONFIG_DUMMY_CONSOLE=y
CONFIG_FRAMEBUFFER_CONSOLE=m
CONFIG_FONT_8x8=y
CONFIG_FONT_8x16=y   
#
# Graphics support
#
CONFIG_FB=y
CONFIG_FB_CFB_FILLRECT=m
CONFIG_FB_CFB_COPYAREA=m
CONFIG_FB_CFB_IMAGEBLIT=m
CONFIG_FB_SOFT_CURSOR=m
CONFIG_FB_MODE_HELPERS=y
CONFIG_FB_TILEBLITTING=y
CONFIG_FB_VGA16=m
CONFIG_FB_VESA=m
CONFIG_VIDEO_SELECT=y
CONFIG_FB_NEOMAGIC=m

Simply running "modprobe -a fbmod" did all the magic needed, console switched to 1024x768 @ 16bit, 60Hz. Editing your /etc/modules (may depend on distribution) to auto-load fbmod will result in always having a nice framebuffered console.
