Framebuffer shell through ssh on Debian?
I run a Debian 8.0 x64 stock install on the cheapest plan and would like to run my shell in the framebuffer mode and forward that through ssh (so I can draw arbitrary graphics :>)
Unfortunately /dev/fb0 (or fbn for that matter) doesn’t exist. How can I fix this?
Alternatively, I’m also fine with other solutions as long as I can draw arbitrary pixels to the (ssh tunneled) screen.
Help really appreciated,
