Re: fglrx console issues. [solved]

Have you tried passing a nofb to the kernel?

Re: fglrx console issues. [solved]

I tried adding nofb and nothing changed. I dont think its loading a fb anyway. Everything is fine until I load X and then there is no turning back  yikes

Ive tried googling this and the only thing that turned up was something about removing 'quiet splash' from the grub command line which I had already.

I also tried turning off the grub graphical console which lets me see the kernel boot without switching modes, but I still cannot return to consoles.

This is what i have atm.

GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT=""
GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX="nomodeset"

Re: fglrx console issues. [solved]

Ok I found the solution on the archlinux boards.

Adding a vesa resolution to the command line worked. I added vga=792 and it all works fine now. Apparently its a bug in 13.4 drivers.
