Default TwinView + Console = Error :\

ok this is ...
I've been having this problem with many different nvidia drivers so i'm sure it's my config..
This only happens if I have TwinView on (with TV, haven't tried another monitor)

When I press ctrl-f1-6 I'm supposed to get the usual console or whatever it's called but instead I get either a black screen or some randomly spread green squares (sometimes they have a pattern of pink pixels in them that blink)

Any clues?

( I'm pretty sure this is all you need from my XF86Config: )

Default Re: I want my console back, nVidia!

Try removing vesafb by removing the option "vga=" from your kernel options, usually in GRUB or LILO. The consoles will then be in 640x480 with no graphics, but they should work.
