Re: [linrad] Radeon Video Card / svgalib information

Nice to see you here and welcome to join us!

Don't you have any console switching problem?
Let me clarify a little.....

Console Switching problem:
During your Linrad run, the Linrad console gets corrupted (unusable) when
you come back from other console.
In other words, try to switch to other console by CTL-ALT-F key pressed
then come back to the Linrad console again.
Is your Linrad console looks just same as before?

My Matrox Millennium G400 doesn't work but geForce2 MX400 works without
any problem in svgalib 1.4.3.
I have arranged /etc/vga/libvga.config corrected of course.
