I don't really know. I used video=ofonly but it doesnt help.
I can login on terminal 4, and it seems that there are no fb module (at

I have a /dev/fb0

I've tried to look at scripts run by debian-installer
in /lib/debian-installer.d

S35 test debconf-get debian-installer/framebuffer to output "true", but
it's not the case on this powerbook.
