Subject: [gentoo-user] Radeon driver - blank console

1 Hi,
3 the recent update of virtual/opengl forced me to switch from my ati
4 [legacy] driver to the open source driver (radeon)
6 While I got X11 running, my console gets blanked before I can log in
7 on the command line.
9 Which (framebuffer?) kernel parameters have to set?
10 It looks like the kernel or init process (openrc) tries to switch to a
11 higher resolution (on the text console) when the screen (console) gets
12 blanked.
14 (Loggin in "blindly" and invoking startx, I get a running X-server).
16 Many thanks for some pointers,
17 Helmut
