Re: killing the penguin (framebuffer)
One way to get rid of it is, after you log in, type:
at the command prompt. That resets your TTY parameters to the default, and
gets rid of the penguin.
If you put "vga=normal" in /etc/lilo.conf, you will also need to run the "lilo"
command to write a new boot sector.
But I suggest leaving the framebuffer, you can run at higher resolution and use
nice fonts like the one from Sun. Just type reset to get rid of the penguin.
