100.14.11 won't let me switch away from X.
 
Once X is started, I can't switch between the terminals. Ctrl+Alt+F2, Ctrl+Alt+F1, etc. all just result in a screen with funky brown and grey and green lines. 100.14.09 works fine.

I have the same problem after installing Version 100.14.11
(I used 1.0.9755 before):

When I try to switch to a terminal, my TFT complains that it can't display the mode and stays dark. (using the terminal blindly or switching back to the X-session works)
Unfortunately it doesn't tell me, what this unsupported mode is.

I use the boot parameter "vga=788" to switch to 800x600@16bit.

Does this problem persist if you change vga=788 to vga=normal and reboot?

Yes, the problem resists with vga=normal.

Thank you for your attention,
lorn.

I'd like to see a new bug report under those circumstances.

here comes the new bug report.

By the way: I can't switch to the terminal WHILE the X-server is running as mentioned above. AND i get no output after i shut down the X-server.
