Hi Folks,

  I recently installed Linux (pl15) and Xfree 2.0  (based on Slackware).
  Now I have the problem that on leaving X (fwm,twm,olwm or olvwm) I get
  a nice black on black text-display on all consoles.
  I think I tried everything (FAQs, friends, experiments ...) and still no
  I own a Spea V7-Mirage (Bios 4.01) 1MB,VLB , 20MB RAM, 12 MB Swap on a DX2-66

  Any help would be apprechiated.

1. Weird problem with Red Hat & Storm setup - text displays black on black background


I've decided to try another set of distributions in order to get a
working Linux system.   Whenever I try to install Linux in graphics
mode, I get black text on a black background.  All other icons, etc,
seem to display properly.....

What's wrong, and is there anything I can do about it?   My video is
on the motherboard, and it is a SIS 5798 (I can double check this
later), and I have no problems with display in either the Caldera
distribution or in Windows (aargh!) environments.

I can't afford to keep playing with new distributions - I want
something that will work!   I know Linux is a great o/s - I've seen it
in action on other computers.   All I want is to get it working on my
system.   Can anyone help?
