mis-focused framebuffer console on nvidia 6600gt after switching back to VT from X

leave a comment »

the machine starts just fine in framebuffer VT, but after entering X and switching back to any VT, screen text gets smeared out. modprobe nvidia with the following option solves the problem.

# /etc/modprobe.d/nv6600gt.conf
options nvidia NVreg_UseVBios=0
