Description dazza 1998-12-15 17:37:32 EST
When booting my RH 5.2 system with the parameter
vga=ask
in /etc/lilo.conf and selecting a video mode other than
25x80 {eg 50x80}, the display reverts to 25x80 mode when
inetd starts in the bootup process.
Even setting
vga=1
in /etc/lilo.conf has the same problem - as soon as inetd
starts, the display returns to 25x80 mode.
