2.4.20-ben10 on Powerbook 12": nvidia progress, console buggy
I am thrilled to report that with 2.4.20-ben10 rsynced this evening I
can quit X and get the console back, or switch between X and virtual
consoles, thanks apparently to the "major rivafb updates from Paul
Richards & others".
I'll try to find out on my own why this is, but now the console has
problems: it boots up into what looks like 800x600 or possibly even
640x480 (80x24 characters) centered on the screen, and it can't really
handle text properly -- certainly not ncurses applications, but even
"reset" and "clear" and ^L don't clean it up, so it's unusable.
But I'm happy to be able to quit X, now.
