Default TwinView & Console bug

Hi there everyone.

I have got the following problem:
When i start my X Server (TwinView enabled) and i want to get back to the console, i just see a black screen. The system does not freeze but i cant see anything. When i start the X Server again both screens work.

What you are pointing to is a known bug. Likely the screen appears on the second head when you switch back to console. (if the second head isn't a TV)

It got one TFT (DVI) and one CRT (Sub-D). Is there anyway to fix this bug?

Nope the only thing you can do is to submit a bugreport to linux-bugs@nvidia.com.

For laptop users there was something a little similar. When they switch to console the screen turns black. For those people the framebuffer vesafb fixed the problems. (only use vesafb and NOT rivafb)
