I love virtual terminals...but I can't get them to work on my Karmic laptop.
I have a Radeon card and I'm running Grub2.
I just upgraded to 9.10 and didn't have virtual terminals in Jaunty either,
the first time I tried to use a virtual terminal after the upgrade, it worked!
...but only for 1 second...then it became a curtain of colorful lines.
I added additional resolutions to /etc/default/grub but this hasn't changed anything.
Since it did display for that one second, I assume the solution is only a matter of configuration, but what? and how? (refresh rate?)
Can anyone help?
