Here are some frequently asked questioins on zhcon:


How to run zhcon automatically after login?

Put "zhcon >/dev/null 2>&1" in your .bashrc


I have installed zhcon, but it is too slow, why?

zhcon supports three different video drivers: framebuffer (fast), VGA (slow), libggi (slow). On start up zhcon will try to select best driver to use. If the framebuffer device is not available (not compiled into kernel) it will fall back to use VGA driver that works under 640x480x16 color mode, which is quite slow.

To achieve best performance, it is recommended to always use framebuffer driver in (8bit) 256 color mode. Speed will no longer be a problem.
