Default Vanta and framebuffer howto

Hi framebuffer users,
.
I am a user who would like to use Nvidia Vanta VGA and framebuffer on Debian kernel-2.4.31.
When I would like to use this VGA with framebuffer which was selected for JFBTERM,double character package,the monitor was just black.
I selected rivafb and vesafb on menuconfig.
If I don't use jfbterm which needs framebuffer, it works well.
Should I install a certain vanta driver such as 1.0-7184 version to the kernel ?
Otherwise which option should I choose on menuconfig ?
Could you please give me some tips of a procedure to fix vanta vga on Debian ?
.
Warm regards,
Nobel

Default Re: Vanta and framebuffer howto

The Nvidia Linux drivers are for X only and don't give a console framebuffer. There's nothing we can do for you if those framebufers you mentioned don't work. In general those should work, perhaps not always very fast or stable but they should work.

Hi,
.
I do appreciate your tips.
I tried Vanta and framebuffer under kernel-2.4.27.
I selected vesafb and rivafb on the config.
And I used vga=769 on the grub.
I succeeded it, jfbterm worked very well.
But I failed it under kernel-2.4.31 with the exact same conditions.
Should I use the different vga number or another fb on the config ?
.
Thanks in advance,
Nobel
