Re: Screen corruption on startup 2.4.0-test7

Now I might as well put in my two bits on another annoyance....
2.4.0-test7 no longer displays (vidmode bzImage 8, and passing vga=8 via
syslinux) the same as earlier kernels.

I get a wrapped extra line on the bottom, and on the first scroll thru I get
all kinds of pretty colours on the extra line.

Just an annoyance, and haven't had time to chase it down..
Just thought I would mention it, in case this is a similar issue.
