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.

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