Description Charles Churchill II 2000-01-10 05:07:14 UTC
My graphical desktop display is unreadable.
The text is all blacked out.
I first noticed it when I installed, I had to use the text version.
The text at was only readable in the top and bottom rows of a scrollable
Any info would be useful.

Comment 1 Charles Churchill II 2000-01-10 16:34:59 UTC
In the meantime is there a way that I can switch to text mode. Currently, my
system boots in graphical mode and I can't really use it.

Comment 2 Charles Churchill II 2000-01-18 14:30:59 UTC
I installed the earlier version of the SVGA driver and can now use the
graphical environment.
