Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 100790
Virtual Terminal screen blanking doesn't blank non-normal text
Last modified: 2007-04-18 12:56:06 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.
