I finally have my new gentoo system starting! yay!
I have compiled a kernel with framebuffer support and set the default resolution in menuconfig at 1024x768@60. The system starts and quickly initializes the framebguffer. The problem is that the entire screen is very dark, the white text seems to be a greyish color and its generally hard to read. I am currently not using any video= line in the grub.conf file. Should I be using a different framebuffer driver or passing a different string of video settings? The text looks great in the livecd.
