configure plpbt.bin with plpcfgbt to start in textmode

plpcfgbt vm=text plpbt.bin

I've had the same issue after changing the resolution to an unsupported resolution.
Try reinstalling. Fixed it for me. ;D

hi blaataap,
your problem was some kind of different. you are using the harddisk installation. jake is using plpbt.bin. with the next release, the installer makes it possible to set the resolution to text mode, so a reinstall is not needed. jake has only to configure plpbt.bin with plpcfgbt.
