Incomplete console blanking
Last modified: 2007-04-18 12:52:45 EDT
Description of problem:
sometimes the text console is not entirely blanked
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
fresh Red Hat Linux 9 (Shrike)
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Switch to VT1
2. login as root
3. run screen
4. run pinfo grub
5. browse around
6. wait for the console to blank -> the screen is not entirely erased !
the top and bottom line are still visible ( the pinfo status lines )
see step 6.
Should try it without running "screen"
My system boots into level 5. X is running the "vesa" driver on a Hercules 3D
Prophet 4500 AGP ( Kyro II chipset )
