Optimal settings for GeForce2 MX console framebuffer

I have Red Hat 8.0 and i am using rivafb kernel module for console framabuffer and i wonder is it an optimal setting for my GeForce2 MX graphic card ?

As far as i know only rivafb and vesafb (with its eye-killer 60hz refreshrate) will work as a console framebuffer with GF2 or meaby there are other modules dedicated for GeForce and newer cards than Riva ?

Can nvidia kernel module work as console framebuffer because i cannot get it to work a normal way via modprobe.

Best regards

The nVidia kernel module will not work as a console framebuffer.

And if the nVidia kernel module is loaded, neither will rivafb. If you plan on running X, DO NOT use rivafb. It will cause lockups, garbled screens, and instability.
