    The configuration menu has changed recently so that support for normal
    console operation is not included by default. To activate the usual
    console on VT and on VGA requires selecting options that are buried
    in the 'Character device' 'Input device' and 'Graphics support' menu
    sections. Go all the way to the bottom of each section and you will
    see the obvious items you need to select. Rather a confusing change.
