    Question Problems with caca

    I am having problems with caca(text based rendering). If I run vlc or mplayer from a terminal window in gnome, it works great. If I switch to the terminal at F1(Ctrl+Alt+F1), the output starts flickering and only part of(mostly the top) the picture appears. I am running the following command.

    mplayer -vo caca ./video.mpg

    I also tried
    CACA_DRIVER=ncurses mplayer -vo caca ./video.mpg

    I would like to know how to fix the output and where I can find more info. All google gives me is the above command and mplayers documentation(which gives nothing for caca). aa has a little more documentation but not much.
