SubjectConsole screwed up - was: Re: Kernels -in and out
----- Forwarded message from Albert Cahalan -----
From: Alan Cox <>
Any setup with suid root software that
gets IO privileges is broken. Any setup that lets the user jam
the console into some weird keyboard/video mode is broken.
I hope some of this stuff can get fixed in post-2.0 Linux.

----- End of forwarded message from Albert Cahalan -----
I second that. Have you ever tried to reset a virtual terminal
to non |||| semigraphical mode after cat-ing a binary file?
Even exit and hitting ctrl-d on the login, which helps on other
systems, does not here. Any known ways to reset the terminal
to readable characters?
