[uClinux-dev] framebuffer/console question

i have a working coldfire board, running uClinux. I connected a 128x64
monochrome lcd on gpio, and written a framebuffer driver.
From userspace i can now write on "/dev/fb0" and see some images properly.
My question now is about console. Just for playing, i am trying to see
the console output on the LCD. Even if very small, this should be
possible, as i enabled the "console framebuffer" driver and some fonts.
Once i booted linux, i try an echo "test" > /dev/console, something
seems to happen on the screen, some pixels are cleared, but i don't see
nothing similar to font chars.
I read fb and fbcon docs, but i couldn't find any document that explain
if console fb driver (fbcon) can be used with some fb drivers only (like
vesfb), or with any fb driver. So my question is: is it possible or i
should add/create some additional driver ?
