multihead and disable software scrolling ?

Unfortunately once scrollback gets enabled (and allocates its scrollback
buffers, fills couple of pointers here and there), it is not trivial to
disable it again. If someone feels for doing that, do that. But I think
that changing default scrollback value from 32768 to 0 is better - as
you'll still have scrollback if your hardware can do it.

 matroxfb problems with dualhead G400

I agree for 2.4 kernels the solution Petr stated is the best. It is not
easy to properly implement soft scrollback. Sometime ago I worked on a new
scrollback implementation that was more in the upper console layers so
other systems could take advanatge of it. It is not a easy problem to
solve. In the next following weeks I should start working on this again.
