The framebuffer console fbcon , as its name implies, is a text console running on top of the framebuffer device. It has the functionality of any standard text console driver, such as the VGA console, with the added features that can be attributed to the graphical nature of the framebuffer. In the x86 architecture, the framebuffer console is optional, and some even treat it as a toy. For other architectures, it is the only available display device, text or graphical.

Examples are Matrox G et. If you forget to set XkbDisable, you will have to put the following lines in your. Xmodmap to straighten out the keyboard mappings. Alternatively, you can edit your xkb to reflect the list below. This is fixed in XFree86 3.

Hopefully the X11 problems with supported graphic cards will be fixed in future releases. All you need is a picture 80 pixels in height and width, with less than colours.
