Hi,

please use the latest CVS version of DirectFB and viafb.

Our own version of viafb is located in "linux-fb/cle266fb" (cvs.directfb.org),
cle266vgaio is obsolete now.

This parameter is for vesafb only, you can remove it.

Please put the following mode definition as the first one into "/etc/fb.modes":

mode "720x576 50Hz 16bit"
    geometry 720 576 720 576 16
    timings 31208 144 40 32 10 128 3
    bcast true
endmode

This looks like ABGR, which viafb version did you use? The one from VIA?
