Re: Pink console on FC4

Hi,

Just upgraded my FC3 to FC4 and now I suffer from unreadable console.  I
have my box running continuously on runlevel 3 and start X (Gnome)
manually by "startx" when needed.  When exiting X/Gnome back to console
screen it is quite unusable since it now has pink letters (or pixels...)
on Purple background and this all is decorated with green border...

Is there any way to reset to colors on console?

I have Matrox G400 AGP video controller.

TIA,

Jeff



Download ftp://people.redhat.com/mharris/libvgahw.a and as root, copy it to /usr/X11R6/lib/modules/libvgahw.a

Since you use the console, I assume that you are capable at the command line.

mv /usr/X11R6/lib/modules/libvgahw.a  /usr/X11R6/lib/modules/libvgahw.a.fc4
cp <location of saved fc3> libvgahw.a /usr/X11R6/lib/modules/libvgahw.a
chmod 444 /usr/X11R6/lib/modules/libvgahw.a
chown root:root /usr/X11R6/lib/modules/libvgahw.a

I believe that this problem has quite a bit of attention to it. Originally, MGA and Intel were known to cause problems. These drivers were tracked seperately since drivers were suspected to be the issue. Now a link seems to be common to these problems. Libvgahw.a is that link.
