I've followed your instructions and it works for 177.82 & 173.14.12 on 64bit SLED 10 SP2.
However, I am unable to see my TTY via Ctrl-Alt-F1. The screen is blank. I'm able to switch back to Ctrl-Alt-F7. While in TTY1, I am able to login as root and issue a reboot. Hence, the TTY is there but I cannot see it. Also posted this
but got no response from the forum so far.
Do you have any suggestions for this challenge? Thank you.
