Re: Color Console

I noticed the same thing when I switched from Slackware to Debian. The 
problem isn't in the console. It is the individual programs. Minicom can 
be configured to give you color. I haven't gotten around to looking at ls 
yet, but it should be that either it isn't using the colorls patch, or 
the neccesary options just aren't set to make it display in color. If the 
colorls patch isn't used, I'm going to take it from my Slackware CDs and 
put it in.
