Description Jonathan Kamens 2002-10-30 08:45:45 UTC
If I hit 'c' in grub on boot to enter its CLI, then enter a sequence of commands
to configure and boot a kernel, then type "boot" to actually activate the boot,
the colormap of the background changes, as if grub is trying to do *something*
to the console, but the screen otherwise does not change and the entire boot
happens without any text actually appearing on the screen.

I'm using grub-0.92-7.

SuperMicro S2DGU motherboard.  Yes, I have the current BIOS.

Comment 3 Jeremy Katz 2002-12-29 06:35:38 UTC
Graphics support reworked in 0.93-1 which should fix the problem
