I have had this problem as well, and i finally gave up until i could get a Voodoo
or Rage 128, which have DRM, etc etc. My current card is a savage 4. After
tryintg all the patches and everything. i finally just disabled the nice
framebuffer consoles so that when X crashes it doesnt take the consoles with it..
does anyone knoe of a real fix?
