Default Re: Driver screwing up tty's 1-6

The problem DOES seem to affect only some cards, but it seems quite unpredictable which cards are affected. For instance, I have had problems with a FX5200 from Asus and an MX440 (I don't remember the vendor), but I had no trouble with an FX5200 from AOpen (besides the fact the card eventually overheated to ruin, but that could have been a problem from poor case ventillation). If you have an older card and are on a 2.4 kernel, you can use version 4363 of the driver. This version has no trouble with the framebuffer but is older and might not support a newer card. I don't know how the minion.de version works for kernel 2.6, if you need the framebuffer and are on kernel 2.6 it's probably worth a try.
