Which surely broke my framebuffer, which worked fine with

I have the following in my init script:

if lspci | grep -q 'MGA G400'; then
modprobe matroxfb_base
con2fb /dev/fb0 /dev/tty1
con2fb /dev/fb0 /dev/tty2

And options matroxfb_base vesa=0x117
in /etc/modprobe.conf.

After the above loaded my monitor turned black and the led
started blinking. I just hope such changes can't damage it.

BTW, I'm not sure why, but the con2fb lines only work for the
first tty. I have to manually run "con2fb /dev/fb0 /dev/tty2"
after I boot. Isn't con2fb supposed to do it for any ?
