[boot.iso] garbage output on text screen at stage2
Last modified: 2008-03-19 05:12:19 EDT
Description of problem:
When doing a network install, a lot of garbage text is output
when/after loading stage2.img.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. install from boot.iso
2. load stage2.img
screen fills with garbage characters until testing for and starting X
but install proceeds normally.
No garbage text on screen.
This has been happening for quite a while in rawhide.
This is due to a lockdep warning from the kernel and the kernel not writing
properly with the terminal mode that slang sets up.
Appears to be fixed now with current rawhide.
