    Angry How I do i turn off the console screen blanker ?


    RH 6.2 ..

    Aaargh.. about 5 minutes after i reboot, my plain-old text console screen-blanker kicks in and I have to leave the other side of the room to hit the Control key (couldn't find the "any" key). This not only makes it very difficult to indulge in my hobby of couch-potatoing, but more importantly I might miss something on my "top" display.

    How do I turn it off ?

    TIA

    Thanks!


    All sorted ! I put the command in /etc/bashrc and all seems to work.
