VC switching during install
The other day I used the 2.2.4 rescue/base disks to install a
masquerading proxy DSL gateway. At one point during the
installation, I switched virtual consoles to look at the log
The install program updated its screen, and wrote to the console I
had switched to, rather than to vc1 where it was running. That is,
the screen turned blue with a dialog up.
I'm sorry, but I cannot recall just exactly what phase of the
installation I was at, and did not jot it down then.
When I typed, I saw nothing; I switched back to vc1 and the screen
wasn't right, the things I'd typed had been written there, and
pushing C-l didn't redraw.
I've got nothing better to do today but read books or code... I'm
going to see if I can find the relevant code and whether I can
understand it well enough to try and find the problem. Don't count
on me to fix anything.
