I found out in the inet, that framebuffer console depends on installed x-server. On boot there is the pinguin graphic, wich tells me that framebuffer is working, without magiced x-server in gentoox pro.
Thats what makes me wonder. My question now is...
Is that by default running framebuffer support, automatically the so called "framebuffer console" or do i need to do something to enable it.
The sense of this is to use (if possible) such framebuffer for watching jpeg, bmp and tif files and to use links in a grafik mode, with pics, etc. (Is that possible (maybe) without extra svgalib?
And can i use that framebuffer with mplayer, movies, etc?
For short, can i get globally grafic output without x-server?
Thanks for info / wisdom
