Black screen with new image (2012-10-28)

With the previous Raspbian image it was possible to run, e.g.,
Code: Select all
scummvm

from the console (without having X running) without problems.

With the "new" official Raspbian image (2012-10-28-wheezy-raspbian) I get a black screen, but the program seems to run in the background. The same behavior can also be observed with other programs (GnGeo, DGEN) that did not have this problem.

I tried setting
Code: Select all
chmod 777 /dev/fb0

but this does not solve the problem.

Do you have an idea what could cause this problem and might exist due to some changes in the recent official image?

Hello,

I still have the problem mentioned above. Maybe someone can point me to a revision history of Raspbian that shows recent changes to the video systems/modules/configurations?

Same here!

On previous versions I had a line added to /boot/config.txt:
config_hdmi_boost=4

This fix, however, seems not to solve the black HDMI-screen-problem on the 2012-10-28 release.

I just rewrote the SD-card and it works...

Yes, I also cannot observe this black screen issue with another fresh installation.
