con2fbmap(8)               Linux frame buffer utils               con2fbmap(8)



NAME
       con2fbmap  -  shows  and  sets mapping between consoles and framebuffer
       devices.

SYNOPSIS
       con2fbmap console [framebuffer]

DESCRIPTION
       This documentation is not finished

       con2fbmap is a system utility to show or change the mapping of the con-
       soles   to  the frame buffer device. The frame buffer device provides a
       simple and unique interface to access different kinds of  graphic  dis-
       plays.

       Frame  buffer  devices are accessed via special device nodes located in
       the /dev directory. The naming scheme for these nodes is always  fb<n>,
       where n is the number of the used frame buffer device.

OPTIONS
       The  first  option  must be there, and identify the console on which to
       work.  If the second option is not set,  con2fbmap  shows  the  current
       mapping  of  identified  console. If the second argument is given (as a
       number) con2fbmap maps  the  identified  console  to  said  framebuffer
       device.
