just did a:
aux/vga -pv for starters, it doesnt say "controller not in ./vgadb",
instead it recognizes the nvidia geforce 3 card in my laptop..
in a tutorial i found i should try aux/vga -lpv next.. now here comes
my problem : )
when booting up plan9, i either select defualt values for mouse
resolution and monitor type (ps2,640x480x8 ... ) and get a blank black
or i set some idiotic value for either monitor or resolution (like
tretretre) and in that case aux/vga -lpv will try tretretre <at> 640x480x1,
and will fail miserably. it still recognizes the nvidia card tough.
