Default How to disable a framebuffer

I have the latest nvidia drivers installed on Slackware 10.2. I have configured and got it working but when I change to a virtual terminal or shutdown out of x the screen goes blank with green rectangle.

Another thread said that this corruption is usual when a framebuffer is in use.

The guy answers "disabled frambuffer and all works fine".

My question is. How and where do I go to disable the frambuffer.

Assuming you're using vesafb, passing video=vesa:off vga=normal to the kernel via the kernel command line (i.e. via GRUB/LILO) should disable it.

I am on Slack and use Framebuffer...

Looking at the screen corruption, I use to get this too when I EXITED X, but console was then all corrupt with greens, blues and reds.

The solution was to add these options to xorg.conf in the 'Section "Device"' part:

# Nick 24/07/2004 - attempt to stop corruption exiting X

Option "ConnectedMonitor" "CRT-0"
Option "IgnoreDisplayDevices" "TV-0"

You will obviously have to specify the Devices according to your set up.
