    SubjectRe: Fuzzy textmode
    So what's the point?
    The current Linux kernel does not really touch the VGA
    registers. This is all done in user space (from the X
    server or tools like vgatextmode). If these programs
    fail to work, this is a bug in these programs, not in
    the Linux kernel (some people disagree and started the
    GGI project).

    Regards
    Joerg
