I'm currently trying vt(9) on a CURRENT kernel (only the kernel not the
base). I have very small bugs, not really serious. I'm currently using
the radeon KMS driver.
* When I switch from a tty to X I can see the mouse appearing but the
tty is still displayed until I move the mouse. Or until I wait something
like 3 seconds. It sounds like a small refresh trouble.
* When I don't use the native resolution (i.e the radeon firmwares are
not loaded) switching from a tty to another results sometimes in a black
screen when only some colors are displayed. This does not seems to
appear when the native resolution is set.
And some questions:
* Will you add support for dead keys? I have a UK keyboard and when I
want to write french characters like à ô ê I usually press the `
character then a. Same for ^ then o and e. To accomplish this, I use the
extd variant in Xorg. This let me to press the dead ` character before
a. It would be great to add this support to the vt (or maybe it is
already done but I was not able to modify .kdb files to support that).
Thanks for your great work on vt(9) and I'm very happy to have full
unicode support and a quick tty switch :-).
PS: this is more a personal opinion, but I really prefer the syscons
font rather than the vt(9)'s one.
