Description Dax Kelson 2003-07-25 11:05:07 EDT
Description of problem:

With kernel 2.4.20-19.9, I noticed that out at text virtual terminal when the
screen blanking kicks in, any text that has attributes applied to them don't
blank. I've never seen this before

So anything that is bold, or dimmed doesn't blank.

To reproduce it, run authconfig a VT and wait 10-15 mins until the screen blanks.

I wish I had a camera with me to snap a picture.

Thanks for the bug report. However, Red Hat no longer maintains this version of
the product. Please upgrade to the latest version and open a new bug if the problem

The Fedora Legacy project (http://fedoralegacy.org/) maintains some older releases,
