    Command:

    restoretextmode

    
    
    

    SYNOPSIS

           restoretextmode {-r|-w} filename
    
    
    

    DESCRIPTION

           The state of the SVGA is written to or restored from filename using the
           vga_gettextmoderegs(3) and vga_settextmoderegs(3) functions.
    
           As of this writing this file is 385 bytes long but  this  might  change
           with future versions.
    
           Please do not fiddle with the contents of the file except when you know
           what you do. It might even result in hardware damage. Because of  that,
           you  should  think twice to make this command available to all users on
           your system.
    
           The purpose of this program is usually to recover from a  crashed  con-
           sole  due  to  an  svgalib,  Xfree or other program bug. First save the
           state of the SVGA card when on a text console. After the crash  restore
           this  state. The savetextmode(1) and textmode(1) script makes this pro-
           cedure very easy.
    
    
    

    OPTIONS

           -w filename
                  write the SVGA state to the file filename.
    
           -r filename
                  restore the SVGA state from the file filename.
