As you may noticed I am working on the SeaVideoBios (Geode part). And I am running into a simple question:
What is the default state/video mode the VideoBios should enter during/after init?
In general I need to set the wanted mode via int10 AH=00h Would it be okay to have no mode set during init and trust that the mode is set before using it?
SeaBIOS will always set the mode (to AH=03h) immiediately after initializing the vgabios. I've observed this behaviour in other off the shelf BIOS implementation as well.
