He everyone.

I'm having a very strange problem on my new PC. Every time I boot my PC, my framebuffer kicks in at about 2.9 seconds, and it looks lovely. However, during the boot sequence, after processing the uevents, it changes terminal fonts and becomes so blurry, you literally cannot read the text. And it remains this way, making the VTs unusable.

I have never heard of such a problem, and even googling this turned up bubkis.


Thanks for you help!

some info about my machine:

I Still have not figured this out... I have tried playing with setfont, and changing the fonts in /etc/conf.d/console & setting the consolefont to run at boot... but it still does it. The fonts seem to change, but they always get extremely blurry after uevents are processed. I don't see anything weird in dmesg or in my log files.

Anyone have any idea what is going on here? This is very strange...

I have the same problem with my GTX 970. I tried uvesafb and efifb and both have blurry fonts in framebuffer.

Can you try turning off the boot logo and tileblitting support?

Wow... I must have flipped just about every possible kernel option on and off for framebuffer... nothing worked.

In desperation, I switched to 3.18.6-gentoo -- and bam! I'm in business. Framebuffer console looks beautiful!

Hooray.


Thanks for the input fellas.

Ok... so... I'm not sure what happened. It worked... then it stopped working quite suddenly. It is blurry again... :(

I have this problem too! (I have toblindlyreboot at runlevel 3 if something occurs.)
Someone said on the nvidia forums :

Code:
It actually forces the console resolution to 640x480 now. Any previous console fonts stay, so they're scaled incorrectly to fit the boxes in 640x480.

I can guarantee you're not using text mode, as that ends up just a little fuzzy, so try using a framebuffer resolution of 640x480, it should be razor sharp.

Hopefully, this might be a forerunner to fb console support.

The difference here is that I don't even boot to runlevel 5... still at runlevel 3... and it is still happening. But clearly, this is related to the nvidia card.

A 640x480 framebuffer... what is the point in that?

try the new 346.47 drivers, solved the framebuffer problems for me.

Why are you surprised? That is the only officially supported configuration with nvidia proprietary drivers, and has been for 15 years.

No. At least uvesa can do more. I have 1280x800x32bit with my GTX460. I remember an old GeForce6600 where even 1920x1200 where possible. It depends on the Graphics card BIOS, not the main chip. The card manufacturer decides that, and it has gotten worse in the last years.

Edit: You wrote "officially supported", okay. I don't known what nvidia support says in case of "sane" framebuffer resolutions, but at least there are graphic cards which can do it.

There is some tool to find the supported vesa modes - vbetool?

Why am I surprised? Not sure "Surprised" is the right word, more disappointed or irritated. As to why? Well two reasons:

1) I have had this working with nvidia cards and framebuffer for the past 13 years without ever running into this issue.
2) I'm not using nvidia framebuffer, but user space vesa. It shouldn't affect it.

And I'm merely remarking that a 640x480 framebuffer is nigh-useless.

Thank you, I will try that at my first opportunity.

Confirmed. This fixes the problem. Thank you Dweeizil.
