Re: ACK! Help me restore my console!
Don't think a "reset" will do it, as that just manipulates the terminal
behaviours... I'll give it a shot anyways in a minute though.
As for the ``shutdown -r now'', I know that I can reboot the system and
be fine, I just want to fix this without doing that, as I stated in the
last sentence of my previous message.
I have X running on the console (login to another box, ssh over to the
borken one, screen, startx, detatch) - I just can't get the text vtys
back to normal. Tried running a SVGALib program. No dice. The only
thing that works is X.
