... so what i want to do is to use the frambuffer for displaying a craphic application
That sounds like something to be avoided.
so i found the Xvfb ( virtual framebuffer )
I seriously doubt that is what you want:
# yum info xorg-x11-server-Xvfb
Loaded plugins: fastestmirror, priorities
Loading mirror speeds from cached hostfile
Name : xorg-x11-server-Xvfb
Arch : x86_64
Version : 1.1.1
Release : 48.90.el5
Size : 3.9 M
Repo : installed
Summary : A X Windows System virtual framebuffer X server.
URL : http://www.x.org
License : MIT/X11
Description: Xvfb (X Virtual Frame Buffer) is an X server that is able to run on
: machines with no display hardware and no physical input devices.
: Xvfb simulates a dumb framebuffer using virtual memory. Xvfb does
: not open any devices, but behaves otherwise as an X display. Xvfb
: is normally used for testing servers.
Not suitable if you want to display
a GUI application. Once more - please explain your requirements including what hardware (and if not a local display software/OS) you want to display on.
