Damn right! That one is so cute. Of all the freaking screensavers I have
seen in my life, Beastie (the old Logo) is the most adorable. If I were
to enumerate why FreeBSD is better than Linux in text mode, Beastie and
the non-blinking cursor would be the prime factors.
However, this gets me into a few problems:
Beastie is available only in text mode. Is there I can get Beastie in an
X session ?
My Cooler Master keyboard's backlights unfortunately only work in X with
'xset led on'. Is there some way I can turn on the backlights in text
mode ? My keyboard backlight switch maps to the Scroll Lock key, a bad
choice for FreeBSD usage because FreeBSD uses that for exactly what it
is supposed to do. (Pressing the Scroll Lock before booting has begun
does not work : it turns on the backlights as well locks scrolling). So
this part of the question effectively becomes : how to execute 'xset led
on' in text mode ?
Thanks for help
