hi Sojan


i what i think there should always be a frame buffer device otherwise 
how X server can work on my machine .....( its my thinking may be wrong ) 
so having  a penguin boot logo is not the sign of having a framebuffer 

btw i dont get any logo at boot time 

2. yes in /proc/devices 

   it shows "fb" character device with major device no 29  


i love    /( )\  linux
