nvidiafb howto use it?
According to this thread
one can solve the conflict between vesafb and the nvidia kernel module of the xserver with the line
Option "ConnectedMonitor" "CRT" (15jack VGA) or Option "ConnectedMonitor" "DFP" (DVI)
Is there also a way to "unlock" the nvidiafb that way, that one is able to use it beside the xserver?
In which format do I have to use the mode_option= and the video= in grub/menu.lst anyway? I ask that also for vesafb, if it is impossible to use nvidiafb and xorg/nvidia.ko side by side. How to make the menu.lst entries?
I updated the initrd with nvidiafb and vesafb in /etc/mkinitramfs/modules , and the depending modules.
Re: nvidiafb howto use it?
Now I boot with vesafb. If I'm going to work only on console I modproble nvidiafb to have console accelerated. If need X I have to reboot because nvidiafb can not be unloaded. I'm working on finding any solution to make nvidiafb unloading possible.
However the best and most compatible way it would be to ask Nvidia again to implement HW accelerated console in kernel binary module.
