The graphics implementation we are using isn’t set up to return the

You can get back to Photon if you start it from a remote console, since
it will take back control of the display, but how can you get the
display/CRT back to original the console?

only use remote sessions, but …)
I would imagine there is some command to reassign the console to the
Hm…I was thinking on this last night. I don’t think the console has
been “un-assigned” per se. What has happened is your graphics
implementation has talked to the graphics card, and put it into
graphics mode. It needs to be switched back to text mode… but
this is usually the domain of whatever did the first mode switch.
Basically, that thing is expected to restore things to how they were
when it is done. Because of this, there’s isn’t a general utility to
switch you back out of graphics mode.
My suggestions were things that I thought might attempt to put the
graphics card into a particular (text) mode…and so might do this,
rather than “re-assign the console” type things.
