CONFIG_FBCON_ADVANCED: Advanced low level driver options

General informations

The Linux kernel configuration item CONFIG_FBCON_ADVANCED has multiple definitions:

Advanced low level driver options found in drivers/video/console/Kconfig

The configuration item CONFIG_FBCON_ADVANCED:

Help text

The frame buffer console uses character drawing routines that are tailored to the specific organization of pixels in the memory of your graphics hardware. These are called the low level frame buffer console drivers. Note that they are used for text console output only; they are NOT needed for graphical applications.

If you say N here, the needed low level drivers are automatically enabled, depending on what frame buffer devices you selected above. This is recommended for most users.

If you say Y here, you have more fine-grained control over which low level drivers are enabled. You can e.g. leave out low level drivers for color depths you do not intend to use for text consoles.

Low level frame buffer console drivers can be modules ( = code which can be inserted and removed from the running kernel whenever you want). The modules will be called fbcon-*. If you want to compile (some of) them as modules, read Documentation/modules.txt.

If unsure, say N.
