hi all.
i've got gentoo 2004.2 (almost) happily running on my powerbook 17" (g4 1ghz) but i'm still fighting with some minor troubles.

one of them is that using vesafb i can't control backlight (i think).

i made a kernel (2.6.9-r1) with no vesafb and vga16fb and rivafb built in, but at boot screen goes black (while the system still seems to come up). in yaboot i've added this line:

append=" video=1440x900-16@60"

but it still goes black, so my question is: rivafb supports 1440x900?

sorry for the poor english and thanks in advance.
