Framebuffer Console Help


When I boot up my machine it boots in framebuffer mode vga=794, but the penguin logo stays at the top of the screen and I can't scroll up with less. Instead a line of text up from my position appears a line above Tux. Once I start and shutdown X the problem stops. How do I stop this? Se siggy for system info.

No, it just clears the screen. OK, scratch that kernel stuff.

Just type clear and the penguin should be gone.

Clearing will make the penguin go away, but I still won't be able to scroll up.
