unreadable stdout


Hi:

I do 'dd if=/dev/hdc' and get the screen full of non-printable chars. I non want to revert the situation and
make the console usable. But the only within my power is to
switch to another console (Alt+Fn). What can I do instead?
Thanks for reading.

Well, with 'dd' , you need to specify an 'of=' option, really.

Try the 'reset' command
