This setting is available only when the build option VRAM_SETTINGS is enabled.


The video RAM contents can be used to capture a screenshot. This is particularly useful for recording failures in automated environments. For example, the output from a failed memory test using memtest.0 can be captured and sent via an HTTP POST request to a remote server for later diagnosis:

  chain -a onepass onefail && goto ok || goto bad
  param screenshot ${vram}
  chain -a http://my.server.address/memtest_fail.php##params
