Framebuffer problems, looks like in stage 2 install, 2.6 kernel
I'm using the 20050127 build of the Debian netinst CD and I boot it
using linux26. The first part goes well (language chooser, etc.) but
just before it starts installing the udebs it does something weird
which looks like the framebuffer is getting reinitialized. This
screws up the display. Switching to another console and back makes
it look ok again.
Yet, if you hold down Alt + Right Cursor Key to switch between
consoles really fast, the consoles get mixed together in the first
one and the screen becomes unusable.
Does anyone have an idea on that?
I tested this on two systems, one with a nVidia TNT2 card and one
with a newer, but really low end onboard card (Intel I think) and it
behaved the same.
If I didn't give you enough details, I can try to reproduce this
with more details.
