virtual terminals (CTRL+ALT+F#) won't work
I just bought a Toshiba Satellite A215-S5837 and installed Hardy, and I'm having many problems.
One of them is that I cannot use the virtual terminals (CTRL+ALT+F#).
When I try all I get is a blank white screen, sometimes with vertical lines of colored dots.
Someone else had a similar problem a couple of years ago (Question #2299) and what they did is
edit etc/boot/menu.lst to pass "vga=791" to the kernel.
But I can't find etc/boot/menu.lst
I tried searching for menu.lst and I found /usr/share/
but neither of these seem to be what I'm looking for.
I need to know if passing vga=791 parameter to the bootloader is what I need to do, and
I'd also like to know exactly what the vga parameter is. If it's not what I need to do then what?
