OPENSTEP에 patch를 먹이다보면 VBE driver를 득템할 수 있습니다.

지원하는 mode에 따라 전용 video card가 아니라 하더라도 여러가지 다른 해상도와 색상을 사용할 수 있는데요…

위의 URL을 보면 다음과같은 내용을 발견할 수 있습니다.


This patch installs a VBE video driver. This driver allows an OPENSTEP 4.2 system to use any display adapter which conforms to version 2.0 of the VESA BIOS extension standard. Use of the VBE driver requires updating the kernel and the booter. The updated kernel and booter are also compatible with all other video drivers, and both are included in this patch. For more information, see the VESA VBE OPENSTEP Driver Overview, TIL article 70026.

New Booter Features

The new booter included in this patch includes two new features:

1. If you are using the new VESA VBE driver, you can specify a VBE video mode at boot time. Specify “VBE Check”=Yes at the boot prompt to get a list of available VBE video modes. Then use “VBE Mode”=xxx to specify the mode number you want to use. The mode number is the three-digit number listed before each mode. For example, if one of the listed video modes was:


you would type “VBE Mode”=257 at the booter prompt to boot with 640×480, 256-color VESA graphics.

2. The new booter allows you to step through your boot drivers, choosing which to load and which to skip. Specify Query=Yes at the boot prompt, and the booter will prompt before loading each boot driver.

아마도 VBE Mode라는걸로 뭔가 다른것들을 사용할 수 있는거같습니다.
이걸로 저도 오늘 실험을 해봐야겠네요….
성공한다면 나름 재미있는 경험(?)이 될거같습니다 ㅎㅎㅎ

관심만 몇년 있었지.. 완전 후루꾸 유저군요.. 저도..(쿨럭)
