Fedora Core 6 and Brltty v3.7.2

Hi Dave!

The problem is that this Linux-box is a stripped down mp3-playing box, with 
no compilers installed.
I'll try the nofb parameter. Do I have to give that parameter to the kernel 
in the Grub config file?

Otherwise, do you think a solution could be to select another font with the 
Consolechars utility?

Best regards,
