Framebuffer [/dev/fb*]


I recently moved from debian to Ubuntu 14.04 and realized, that I have no framebuffer device located at "/dev/fb0". I already uncommented the vesafb driver from the framebuffer-blacklist and updated initramfs, however I do not know how to get access to the fb0 device (it does not show up in "/dev") .

It would be nice If you could help :)
