Greetings,

I have a little gentoo usb rescue stick with limited space on it.

up until now I used normal cli with it, I'm trying to check if it I can boot it with fb, for that I need /dev/fbX.

I cannot seem to find the right config to get it to work, here is what I've enabled so far:
Code:
CONFIG_VT_HW_CONSOLE_BINDING=y
CONFIG_FB=y
CONFIG_FB_BOOT_VESA_SUPPORT=y
CONFIG_FB_CFB_FILLRECT=y
CONFIG_FB_CFB_COPYAREA=y
CONFIG_FB_CFB_IMAGEBLIT=y
CONFIG_FB_VESA=y
CONFIG_FRAMEBUFFER_CONSOLE=y
CONFIG_FONT_SUPPORT=y
CONFIG_FONT_8x8=y
CONFIG_FONT_8x16=y


but still not /dev/fbX, I'm using busybox's mdev -s to populate the /dev folder

what am I missing more?
