Console text "sticking"
I installed Debian 3.0 r1 on my Dell Dimension XPS 200 last night, and almost everything has gone OK. Its an old computer, but I intend on making use of its disk space at least.
CPU: Intel Pentium I - mxx 200mhz
HD: 2 partitions, a 2gb, and a 1gb (with debian on).
When debian is booting up, the first 5 lines of the console display a nice little picture of the linux penguin. Half way through the booting sequence, the colours on the image, for lack of a better phrase, go funny. Like they have inverted or something. So, ok, when its finished booting, it will stay there (still is its warped form). If I do a command like "top", which fills the entire screen, the penguin will disappear, and it will run as normal. When I exit top, the first five lines (the space in which the image took up) appear to be stuck. By this, I mean the console acts as if the image was still there, and it was "protecting" the text, but the image has been written over with the top command.
If I type "clear", the screen clears as normal, but by the time I have filled a screen with commands/output, I realise that the same problem is still there.
I don't think this is monitor specific, as when I tried running Slackware to install it, I somehow managed to get it running from the CD (which was by no means what I set out to do...).
