I've just booted my FC7 to check for the VGA driver. Alright I've booted with
the planetccrma 184.108.40.206-1.rt3.2.fc7.ccrmart kernel, but the the VGA driver
is there as vga15fb.ko.
Just had a quick look at the latest FC7 kernel that I had before support was
dropped, 220.127.116.11-34.fc7, and that too shows the vga16fb.ko driver.
Just a bit of info from a still useable but no longer supported Fedora
BTW. I'm posting from FC2, and have hardly ever had a problem with it.
