I have ported Linux 3.7-rc4 to an board with an i.MX257 CPU. A display is connected via LVDS.

The used distribution is Debian Sqeeze for armel.


Until I have started XOrg I have no output on screen, no Linux Tux symbol and no text console.


If I start XOrg I have a correct output, when I terminate XOrg I have an text console.


How to show the Linux Tux and/or the Text console before XOrg starts?


The kernel command line includes "video=imxfb:LCD-SVGA-10-4".


Is another command line string necessary?
