Re: Console font change on startup - breaks laptop
I've noticed that during (sid) startup the font appears to be changed
- both on my desktop box and on the laptop. On the desktop box this is
OK - I get to see more of the boot messages scrolling past before GDM
But - on the laptop - at the point this switches in - all screens
suddenly turn off (Fujitsu Siemens). I get the same with or without an
external monitor - Fn-10 doesn't do any screen switching, or
anything. I have to hard reset. After a couple of resets it all
suddenly seems to work.
Have a look in /etc/console-tools/config. If there is a line like the
# Set the following - more euro-friendly default than kernel font.
comment out the SCREEN_FONT line.
Just an idea, as I remember this switching my font from the vga=9 which
I had specified in my lilo.conf. Not sure if this'll be your prob as it
seems to be commented out by default these days.
