How to turn of screen saver

Post by Jorn Dahl-Stamn » Fri, 06 Jul 2001 15:48:33



I got a PC running Red Hat 6.2, which is used to recieve syslog events from
several routers in our network. No X-windows is running.

When I want to look at the events, I do a "tail -f <syslogfile>". The problem
is that Linux seems to have a screen saver which blank out the screen after
some minutes. I can't find a way to turn this off.

Any way to turn the screensaver off (or even adjust the time to several
hours)?

First, disable the APMD features in the BIOS, then check the
Text-Terminal-HOWTO to "twist" your configuration (CRT Saver).

1. Turning off screen saver on ODT 3.0

Hi,
Could someone let me know how to disable the screen saver on ODT 3.0. The
machine is in a 'demo' area and I want it to permanently display various
status
consoles, etc. on the X desktop.

Thanks,
