Re: Suse 8.2 on a Asus K8V AMD 64 system.

I have a problem with an MSI FX5200 video card giving a screwed up text console after shutting down X.

I have been advised to "disable the framebuffer."

How to go about this?

Also, I am aware that one can pass options of the form "vga=..." to the kernel through the bootprompt.

Where is documentation on these options? I didn't find any mention of the vga option in the HOWTO on the bootprompt, nor the GRUB documentation.
