Default Re: Blank virtual terminals

I had this same problem with 5336 and dvi flat panel. I ended up connecting an ADDITIONAL regular svga cable from the card to the monitor. So I have BOTH the dvi cable and the svga cable to the SAME monitor. Then when I switch to the console, I also toggle the button on the monitor to use the svga cable instead of the dvi cable, and then console is clear. When I go back to X, I toggle the monitor back to dvi.

This all works fine under 2.4.26 of the kernel. I can't get anything to work under 2.6.6 and I have the kernel set to NOT use 4k stacks, but the old 8K stack as before 2.6.6.
