Default Re: Blank virtual terminals

Fixed it!

Not by entering vga=normal from the grub load/boot screen but, for some mysterious reason (I'm a newbie, I know), from the KDE Control Center like this:

Control Center -> Yast2 Modules -> System -> Boot Loader Config -> option "gfxmenu"

->edit Linux###section and add/change the vga=xxx to vga=normal

Reboot, and that's it! 3D worked fine, the nvidia splash screen was on, and all console screens (virtual and otherwise) were crystal clear.

One thing, though: the nice progress bar at load time with the gecko has disappeared. I'm back now to the old black and white scrolling stuff, which is fine as long as I have everything set!

Thanks SuLinUX for first suggesting the vga=normal fix!
