Default Virtual Console corruption enabling Twinview

hello

Im using the latest nvidia drivers with mandriva 2007. i have a Athlon62 3200+ venice
core, ASUS A8N-E MOBO, 512MB RAM, Geforce 6600 LE PCI-X video card.
X works flawlessly without Twinview support. when i enable twinview so i can use my TV as a second display fron nvidia-settings for clone mode and i apply the changes everything works ok too. The problem is that when i save the xorg.conf file and restart X with twinview's configuration, my xterm terminals just hang, i cant type a thing on them and also
if i change to a virtual console i can only see garbage,(video memory corruption?)
notice that when this happens, Linux is still alive, i still can do a CTRl-ALT-SUPR and reboot the machine..

Please help is very welcome!

Oskar.

the weird thing is that when i use nvidia-settings to apply twinview it works great.
When i save the xorg.conf and then restart the Xserver the problem appears..
console corruption strange symbols,etc...
It must be some kind of directive that is written to xorg.conf that is causing the
corruption..

Default Re: Virtual Console corruption enabling Twinview - SOLVED

I just found a way to fix the problem.
I edited my grub configuration, setting vga=normal
and then rebooted the machine and the problem disappeared..
