Re: Problems installing Debian on SheevaPlug

I just noticed something else strange - if I reboot the plug while
it's on a corrupted screen, the uboot display is also corrupted. Then
if I drop my screen session and reconnect it works. It looks like
something the installer is doing on a page change is changing the
terminal settings and causing the corruption.
