I have typed this :
/bin/setterm -blank 1
and the console didn't get blank instead it got scrabled right away, so does this mean the setterm executable is corrupt or something.
This PC is very old and it doesn't even have a framebuffred console support, the monitor is Monochrome LCD and the PC is Pentium Classic 166 MHz@32 MB RAM
The monitor is not connected to the power socket it works directly from the video card, so I will try disabling powersaving options, maybe it will stop scrabling and since the monitor is LCD it doesn't need a screensaver(I can use the top command for that
Any ideas about the corrupt setterm?
