    Command:

    savetextmode

    
    
    
    

    SYNOPSIS

           savetextmode
           textmode
    
    
    

    DESCRIPTION

           These are simple scripts to  save  the  SVGA  register  state  when  in
           textmode   to   the   files   /etc/vga/fontdata  and  /etc/vga/textregs
           ($HOME/.vga/fontdata and $HOME/.vga/textregs if directory  /etc/vga  is
           not writeable) or to restore it from these files.
    
           The  actual  utilities used are restorefont(1), restoretextmode(1), and
           restorepalette(1).
    
           The purpose of these scripts program  is  usually  to  recover  from  a
           crashed console due to an svgalib, Xfree or other program bug.
    
           You  do  this by being a smart guy and running savetextmode right after
           booting of your machine, prior to any problems. Then, in case the  SVGA
           state  is  hosed  and  you  sit in front of a blank or useless console,
           change VC (maybe login) to get to a shell. Or exist the currently  run-
           ning  program  with  <Ctrl>-C,  <Ctrl>-<Alt>-<Backspace>,  or  whatever
           applies. Once you got a shell, run textmode and it will hopefully  ren-
           der your console useable again.
    
           To  make  it  clear:  You do all this while not seeing anything on your
           console screen, you enter this information blindly or after logging  in
           from  a network. Also, if the keyboard is left in raw mode, nothing can
           really help you as you cannot enter anything which a shell will  under-
           stand.
