    drivers/char/vt.c: default_red, default_grn, default_blu

    You can also change them with `echo -en "\e]PXRRGGBB"`, where X is a hex
    digit (range 0-F), and RGB are the components. Check console_codes(4) and
    go figure. :)

    I am not sure if changing colors works with fb, try your best.
