i am known as toaster burger and i am a OS developer.
I am writting on an Operating System, the ToasterOS. (

It uses the VBE Protected Mode Entry Point.
I am emulating my OS with bochs under Windows, and i have noticed the VGA BIOS doesn't support the PM Entry Point.

And here my question:
Does (and when if so) the LGPL'd VGABIOS ever support the Protected Mode Entry Point?
For specifiaction see the vbe3 document, available on .

It's a pitty your vga bios doesn't support this feature :(
