Framebuffer problems


Just got a new laptop, with a native resolution of 1280x800. It seems to be working fine, except after suspending to ram/disk the framebuffer becomes corrupted. (Small repeats of what should be there coloured pink tiled across the top of the screen.)

It works if I use vga=normal, but that doesn't exactly look that great. Is there a way to stop this corruption, either with some other module/options etc?

Any suggestions would be appreciated, thanks

does your video card use nvidia's chipset? This is a known bug for nvidia cards. If so, ask nvidia to fix it. If enough people bother them, maybe they'll do something about it.

Thanks, I guess that is the problem then. Wasn't even that long ago and they didn't support suspend to disk, hopefully soon they will fix this framebuffer bug.

Yup, as stated in the Nvidia changelog, all the suspend issues should be fixed in this update of the driver.
