How can I remove "tux" image?


My box start in text mode and it have tux's image
at the top of screen.It's make some trouble for me
when I use "less" or "man" etc. It will show a wrong
display or not full display.
How can I remove it (tux)?
Now I eleminate it by use "vi" because it's fullscreen
application and after quit a program then tux image
will disappear.

Thanks in advance.

you can alt+Fn to go to a new terminal. the new ones won't have the tux, only the first one.

you can also recompile your kernel and unselect the logo option to get rid of it permanently.

I'm not at all familiar with this (never wanted the framebuffer console so I never bothered), but isn't this a LILO option? Shouldn't just passing vga = normal do the trick as well (presuming you don't mind giving up the framebuffer console)? Just curious.

yep, i guess it's all about the choice. personally i love having the frambuffer tux.

nvm: no, it's not a lilo option, though of course you could remove the logo by using normal vga. in that case, though, as you said you wouldn't get the framebuffer, which can be really nice to have. afaik to remove the logo totally, you have to change the kernel option.

Or you can edit your /etc/lilo.conf

at vga=7XX, you can replace with
vga=ask, this will present you with a list of fonts (matrix) size before the kernel loads. Try till you find your favourite size. Then note down the HEX number of your selection.
Convert the HEX no. to Decimal. Put the Decimal number at vga= in /etc/lilo.conf.
Make sure you back up lilo.conf and also run the command lilo after you edit lilo.conf each time for it to take effect. (Of course this you have to reboot to try)

Synaptical, thanks for the clarification, although I was aware of the framebuffer not being a LILO option in itself - I just figured that you may enable/disable the usage of it via lilo.conf. I somehow find it a bit amusing that an image of Tux is supplied with the kernel source (I assume that's the case).

To get rid of it just once you can use the "clear" command, in Bash you can use "ctrl + l" (that's the letter EL).
