It happens. It is a nuisance. Type "exit". My brain must have been
deep-fried in grease and cooled down in petrified honey when I endured a
green-purple flash of inspiration to try that. You could even yell
"logout", or admittedly "login", at the intricate and beautiful sh in
all its magnificence in order to get where you long for. Somehow I
believe this perfectly-tailored annoyance of Amiga OpenBSD is more
immutable than it looks. But away with the worries, when you exit, many
sundry widgets will load before your eyes, and your rc* files will get
gaily executed, along with mounting every entity in sight.
Should you perchance know how to change the screen resolution and colors
for the OpenBSD console? AGA+1084S makes for sore eyes in the name of
interlaced chivalry. And I'll soon be complaining noisier than ever if
I can't find out how to switch consoles on this wacky Amiga
Is that even possible? Geez.
