vesafb driver with machdep.allowaperture=0
I am currently running Xorg on OpenBSD 4.7. It works fine, and it's fast enough.
I would like to get rid of the dependency on aperture. It seems that it's been possible for some time:
I tried several things:
1) I leave my xorg.conf unchanged, and set the variable machdep.allowaperture to 0. However, after reboot, X11 complains, so I suspect the current driver ("vesa" in xorg.conf) does need aperture
2) I left the variable machdep.allowaperture unchanged (at 2), and tried the driver "vesafb" but it doesn't work with the message: "module does not exist"
3) After a "man Xorg" it seems that there's a module called "wsfb" (which is also talked about in the link above). Still leaving machdep.allowaperture to 2, I changed the driver, but the message is still "module does not exist".
What am I doing wrong here?
