I don't quite understand what you mean. I thought you can't switch back to VT? > At one point in FreeBSD 4.8 I could switch to the virtual console, but > everything was wavy - text was moving around (it was really weird). Could you describe this a bit more? I'm often seeing text moving around, and weird colorful stripes on the screen when I switch to X. Viewing a specific page in Mozilla triggers this. Unfortunately, I can't just open the debugger and see what's going on at this time, because I can hardly see anything on the screen. When you're able to reproduce it, then have a look at the on-screen menu of your monitor and check the frequencies, they're probably way too high. > Thanks, > > Adam Olsen > > Daniela wrote: > > On Thursday 15 January 2004 17:06, Adam Olsen wrote: > >>Hello, > >> > >>I'm using FreeBSD 5.2-RELEASE and have installed the latest nvidia > >>drivers available.
