Default driver 8178 on a GF GO 7300 corrupt text console

My Notebook asus A6Km with go7300 works great in grafic mode.

Switching to text console shows blank screen. Switching back to grafic
doesn't work either. Nevertheless the system is still running.
crtl+alt+del to reboot ist working. any idea?

Please change vga=0x317 to vga=normal, and disable any other framebuffer setups, and see if that resolves the issue.

Thanks,

With vga=normal ist ist possible to switch consoles.
because of the low resolution this workaround ist not really acceptable.

How to get the 1280x800 resolution back in text mode?

Use nvidiafb? instead of vesafb?

Any Ideas?

Thanks

I'm afraid that framebuffer graphics are not currently compatible with the nvidia X driver at this time. There are tentative plans to address this compatibility at some point in the future.

Thanks,

You could try vga=775. This works for me with 1280x1024, dropping color depth down to 8 bits.

Oops, you want 1280x800. You could try vga=0x37b.

What linux driver do you use with the 7300 chip?

OMG, you have the answer four lines before your question.

I'm considering buying the same laptop but I noticed that the 7300 Go is not listed in the official release notes as a supported graphic chipset. Is this just a misunderstanding or are there more serious incompatibilities we should know about? Will there be full support for this chipset in future driver releases?

Thank you.

The GeForce Go 7300 will be fully supported in the next driver release. It is not supported at all in 1.0-8178.

Thanks,
