Hello Adam,

Could have fooled me. I see fbdev driver builds in current versions of

Slackware:) I see xf86-video-fbdev in "extras" folder, but it is i586
And there is no x64 version.

After reading your answer I decided to read docs, and here is the reason:
"We don't want this one, as it causes failure of X with no xorg.conf"

I was not right about "modern linux": it is only Slackware-specific issue,
I am sorry.

Thank you.
