Description of problem:
since I did the upgrade to 2.6.6-1.435 (from the previous
2.6.6-1.427custom) and compiled my new kernel using my old .config
(after doing make oldconfig of course) all the non-graphic ttys are
black on black. They still work so I can enter commands, but I can't
I attach my .config.
The only thing I did in that time was the kernel upgrade so it must
have something to do with it.
After booting, you can shortly see the tty and when kdm kicks in, they
disappear and don't come back.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. compile kernel
2. boot it (runleven 5)
3. switch to tty and see nothing
Actual Results: If I try to switch to a non-graphic tty, I can't see
anything. It's possible to enter commands though.
Expected Results: Visible ttys
Booting the distri-kernel 2.6.6-1.435 the problem doesn't exist.

kernel .config that created the faulty kernel
This .config creates my kernel. It is the same I always used without
experiencing troubles. I do make oldconfig all the time before an update.
You enable framebuffer but...
# CONFIG_FRAMEBUFFER_CONSOLE is not set
Which would explain why its invisible. Don't know why it worked before.
That works indeed.
Thanks. However, I'm really using that configuration for ages now.
Imported it from RedHat9 and used through many different kernel
