L4Linux without Con or DoPe?

Hi Frank,

I tried a lot of things now, but I am not able to get L4Linux working with the
VESA-fb and without l4fb through Con/Dope.
If I boot Fiasco and L4Linux without l4fb and using vbeset, I see nothing.
If I boot Fiasco and L4Linux without l4fb and not using vbeset, I see the log below.
(grepped via serial console)
If I compile in the VGA-console, l4linux runs smoothly, but I don't get the VESA-fb
Attaching commandline options to the l4linux-kernel (e.g., vga=791 or video=vesa...)
does actually do nothing.

Any further ideas? Attached you'll find my .config-file.

Thanks in advance and best regards,

Marcel Selhorst
