Actually, the answer I was looking for was to modularize the framebuffer support. Once that is a module, you can enable/disable it and then you no longer have any video. I already use the console setting above, but I was looking to completely disable the video.

you should reinstall your desktop. prees ctrl+alt+f1 or some Fi (i<7) login with your user and pass. Write in terminal: sudo apt-get install --reinstall gnome-session Also, see this bug report that solve problem by upgrading : https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/util-linux/+bug/552018

There are a number of technical similarities and differences, but the one difference that should matter to you is that unlike the virtual consoles, using screen, you can attach to a screen session from any terminal connection to that computer: other virtual consoles terminal emulators running in X an ssh (or telnet) connection from another computer All ...

ttys are complex beasts, which can work in several different modes. E.g. when running vi(1), you don't want characters typed to show up on screen, the editor is in charge of what is displayed. This is called "raw" mode. Usually you are in "echo" mode, in which the kernel sends what is typed to the screen directly. If a program which took over the details of ...

You would do this in the grub configuration (requires a reboot to apply the changes). Further reading: How to disable the Linux frame buffer if it's causing problems Disable framebuffer from Grub Meno or Launch ubuntu comand line 5. Disabling the Unaccelerated Framebuffer

Check whether no applications have the port open when you want to use it. Check whether there are no messages in the kernel log (use dmesg). Check what exactly is happening in your application - run it under strace which will report syscalls that the application makes. You probably want tu use something like: $ strace -f -s 512 -o ...

The kernel's terminal driver (termios) interprets the special keys that can be typed to send a signal to a process, send end of file, erase characters, etc. This is basic Unix kernel functionality and very similar on most Unix and Linux implementations. The stty command displays or sets the termios special characters, as well as other parameters for the ...

I'm unable to find what the first tty1 should do, since no manual page for login that I can find mentions any positional argument other than username, which is already specified. However, the rest of the line all deal with input output redirection, see (here)[http://www.tldp.org/LDP/abs/html/io-redirection.html] for nice short examples. Basically: < ...

Those are for input/output redirection. Command line programs display their results to standard output. By default, standard output directs its contents to the display. But when we need to redirect standard output to a file, the > character is used. Commands can accept input from standard input. Normally we do input from the keyboard, With same logic as ...

Add this to your kernel boot parameters (in your GRUB or [e]LILO config): quiet loglevel=0 vga=current That will kill many of the messages, possibly not all, depending on what init software you are using. You can also try configuring individual boot processes to ensure they are as silent as possible. Otherwise, it's probably not worth killing ALL ...

The actual question consists of these two items: Can I use 256 colors in the console without fbterm/framebuffer ? Where does the 8 color limit in the console come from ? To the first: apparently not. All of the suggested approaches use fbterm. To the second: it comes from the terminal description (aka "terminfo entry"). For Linux console, with TERM set ...

Create a new file for terminal 1 '/lib/systemd/system/getty@tty1.service' and copy into it the config you defined above. In /lib/systemd/system/getty@.service use the following: ExecStart=-/sbin/agetty --noclear %I $TERM Console 1 will autologin as diagnosticuser all other consoles will prompt for credentials.
