Deactivate console mode screen saver ?


Hi,

I'm doing some distributed compiling on three PCs running Slackware, using distcc and ccache (thanks to Alphageek for his excellent HOWTO on the subject).

All three machines (running Slackware 14.0) are init 3 installs. I'm watching the distccd logs in real time, but one thing is nagging me. After a couple of minutes, the screen goes dark, and I have to hit any key for the display to come back again.

Is there any way to change this behaviour and deactivate the console screen saver?

Cheers,

Niki

From /etc/rc.d/rc.M
Code:
# Screen blanks after 15 minutes idle time, and powers down in one hour
# if the kernel supports APM or ACPI power management:
/bin/setterm -blank 15 -powersave powerdown -powerdown 60
