RE: [Xen-devel] crashes

cool, thanks. It looks like i can just fiddle with values in /etc/console-tools/config under debian, now that I know what i'm looking for.
hopefully next time I crash it I can see what's what. I'll probably have to hook up a serial console eventually but that will involve sitting there with my laptop which I don't have time to do presently.
thanks again.

man 1 setterm.  The command you want is "setterm -blank 0", which should
probably go in an initscript somewhere.  I think some distributions have
an /etc/ file with a switch for you to toggle, but not the ones I'm
using right now...
