    Default Why `hwinfo --framebuffer` gives me nothing

    Hi all,

    I am trying to find out which modes my graphic card supports. The posts I read say that using following command with root,

    Code:
    # hwinfo --framebuffer
    But it gives me nothing just a splash of some texts flashing then an empty line. I tried to output to a file,

    Code:
    # hwinfo --framebuffer > hwfb.txt
    And the text file is empty too.

    Code:
    # hwinfo --vbe | grep Mode
    gives nothing too.
    Any ideas?

    If you want the output in a file, use the "log" option:

    Code:
    hwinfo --framebuffer --log hwinfo.log
