I have a question regarding svgatextmode.
I installed a new HDD in my notebook and installed a fresh SID system on
it. Everything works nicely except that I can't get svgatextmode working
again like it did before.
The notebook has a neomagic graphics chipset (Neomagic Corporation NM2200
[MagicGraph 256AV] (rev 32)) and svgatextmode works almost well, except
that the cursor is missing on bootup.
When I restart it (/etc/init.d/svgatextmode restart) I get the cursor back
for the current console. The other consoles stay without cursor though.
In /etc/TextConfig I have the line
which seem to define a propper cursor.
I also had to create the file /etc/default/STM_nocheckfb to get it working
Before my complete new Debian installation (was also SID) it worked like a
charm and I don't remember that I had to do anything to get it working.
Does any2 have an idea what might be wrong?
