Default Re: No more black terminals after starting X!!!!

I make 3 things (FC11).
1 - UseVBios: 0
(by adding "options nvidia NVreg_UseVBios=0" to local.conf in /etc/modprobe.d)
2 - comment #blacklist nvidiafb in /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist.conf
3 - add vga=0x31b to the kernel startup options.

After this THREE steps, I have my terminal then X running again !

I think you can use any other vga modes as kernel parameters, but ONLY ! graphical (framebuffer), not "simple text mode".

For me, using uvesafb solved the problem, normal framebuffer (VGA=something) didn't work.

MSI VR630-009PL with integrated GeForce 9100M G.

That did the trick and for me. Sony Vaio VPCCW1S1E with GeForce GT 230M. Now only the backlight controlling issue remains...

I'm running 275.09.07 and the UseVBios=0 hack isn't needed anymore!
