VESA fails to set a valid mode on boot unless selected manually
|Reported by:||edglex||Owned by:||nobody|
Around 2 years ago one of my machines (that uses VESA graphics) started requiring me to select a safe video mode on every boot (otherwise it just hangs on the rocket). Knowing that it was between two hrevs 6 months apart I looked for changes relating to VESA between the dates and have found the change  that caused it (tested by reverting the change and testing).
The change to vesa accelerant is intended to only set the video mode if it is different to the current one. But at least on my hardware, it causes the system to not set the video mode correctly on boot.
