Question 4 possum image on my tty1


Dear all,
after I had messed up my system, I decided to reformat and reinstall my slackware 64. I don't know what I did differently before and I use same installation disk, but now when I boot up my system, I got image of some kind of four possums sitting down. What logo is this? How come I didn't get this from my previous installation? What is the possible difference?

regards,
ethereal1m

Tuz, the Tazmanian devil logo for the 2.6.29 series.

Linux wanted to call attention to the fact that they were all dying of cancer.

for some reason I subconsciously configured tty little bit differently. My previous tty didn't have Tasmanian devil logo and it had larger font. The current one it has smaller font. How can I change it so I can have larger font? How can I configure font in tty?

thanks

You probably weren't using a framebuffer before. "vga = normal" in the appropriate spot in /etc/lilo.conf would fix that for you. Most people prefer framebuffers if they work but to each his/her own. Remember to rerun lilo after modifying lilo.conf.
