slow tty


My nvidia graphic card is GeForce 7800 GTX. Running 304.88 nvidia driver on debian sid (kernel 3.2.0-4-amd64).

While displaying a long text, it takes .006951163 second in an rxvt terminal and more that 12s in tty.

Is it possible to configure the tty display to increase its speed.

Thank you.

Are you talking about the VGA text console you get when X is not running? No, it’s not possible to speed that up.

If you’re using VesaFB, use this kernel boot parameter:


It makes Vesa blazingly fast.
