    Angry Fresh Server Install: CLI flickers + garbled

    I just installed the newest release of server onto my box. I had run DSL linux previously, so I know the hardware functions.

    The installer looked fine, GRUB looks fine, and then I get the garbage in the picture.

    On the left side of the screen the text seems run together, and when I type at the prompt the first few keystrokes are "invisible" but DO REGISTER.

    On the right, the left side of each line is replicated past the status "[OK]" messages.

    The Blinking Underscore cursor itself is on both the left AND right of the screen.

    There is also a "grainy" flickering that isn't very visible in the picture.

    Please help...

    Maybe the framebuffer is acting up, check out How to disable the framebuffer here:
