I've installed Debian 3r1 on my Toshiba Satellite 2655XDVD laptop. When
booting there is a picture of tux in upper left corner that remains
throughout the boot and login. 'clear' makes it go away. But, linux is
confused about the size of the screen; If I pull up a manpage, it
displays fine until I page forward when about the top 5 lines remain at
the top of the screen, and things get worse when I page backwards.
How can I correct this?
Go to the second virtual terminal with Alt-F2.
Or issue command
to get the correct screen size to system.
Thanks, this fixed it. At least for some video modes, I'll have to
experiment more with the vga= line in lilo.conf.
