Re: [opensuse] How to reset vga to nomal on boot?
On 2012-10-07 16:30 (GMT-0700) Linda Walsh composed:

Any special magic (any special console parameters)
to get the console into a readable state when booting into a new
kernel?

You might want to look at https://bugzilla.novell.com/show_bug.cgi?id=675793 as a guide to what you're probably up against. I can't say for sure because I don't intentionally let Lilo (or Grub2) onto any of my systems. When given a choice between no bootloader, Lilo and Grub2 and not Grub Legacy, I choose no bootloader and use some already installed Grub Legacy, or install Grub Legacy using Knoppix, to get me booted.

With Grub Legacy I manage between the combination of non-installation of plymouth, splashy & bootsplash, and a video= on cmdline to override KMS automagic on the ttys.
