I think you might be right. I'll check to see if there's a way to tell. I can't remember if there was. It was very ad-hoc when I installed it. I know when it was installed to vbox I was exporting a term over ssh. vbox has this ILO emulation and that was used at first. Then I used the command line utilities on the host for managing and restarting the VM, and ssh to access the vm itself. ISTR in the emulation that it emulated a text console though. It's the server version of ubuntu rather than the desktop version. I remember having difficulties with character repitition over the emulated console. Having said all that, it would be weird if a server install defaulted to graphics mode on bootup! I guess stranger things have happened... -- John _______________________________________________ email@example.com mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-virtualization To unsubscribe, send any mail to "freebsd-virtualization-unsubscr...@freebsd.org"
