So, Nvidia, PLEASE make it possible to see the console when booting. PLEASE include the kernel framebuffer driver! I'm begging you.
Thank you in advance.
That'd be because they start you out with the opensource nvidia driver. Then you installed the closed source one. Opensource doesn't support 3d, though...amongst many other things.
