Redhat 8.0 console corruption when using linuxconf&kernel make menuconfig
Posted on 2003-03-24
I have this problem with almost all redhat 8 installs i do (im not doing anything special either i dont think) Everytime i run a graphical console program (in runlevel 3) i get some strange screen corruption. Its like the wrong characters are being displayed on the screen. For example, Linuxconf: borders of windows and buttons are all messed up and the same happens if i do a "make menuconfig" for the kernel.
Does anyone have any ideas, i cant believe that this is a difficult problem to overcome, as im not doing anything special or complicated (im pretty much a newbie anyway)
Any help or comments will be really gratefully recieved.
Many thanks in advance.
