Hey hey,
given, that I don't have a framebuffer setup, what is the easiest way to 
render one termain "snapshot" to an image file that can be part of a slide 
show or video?

I have seen fbdump and fbgrab, which rely on the framebuffer and have proven 
them to fail. Everything else I found is for the desktop or to be launched in 
a desktop environment.

Any help, pointers are appreciated!

Best wishes,
