Description Bill Estell 2006-02-28 00:55:25 EST
Description of problem:
Unable to change text console resolution

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
# grub.conf generated by anaconda
# Note that you do not have to rerun grub after making changes to this file
# NOTICE:  You have a /boot partition.  This means that
#          all kernel and initrd paths are relative to /boot/, eg.
#          root (hd1,1)
#          kernel /vmlinuz-version ro root=/dev/hdb10
#          initrd /initrd-version.img
title Fedora Core (2.6.15-1.1955_FC5hypervisor) 800x600
	root (hd1,1)
	kernel /xen.gz-2.6.15-1.1955_FC5
	module /vmlinuz-2.6.15-1.1955_FC5hypervisor ro root=LABEL=/12 vga=771
	module /initrd-2.6.15-1.1955_FC5hypervisor.img
title Fedora Core (2.6.15-1.1955_FC5hypervisor)
	root (hd1,1)
	kernel /xen.gz-2.6.15-1.1955_FC5 
	module /vmlinuz-2.6.15-1.1955_FC5hypervisor ro root=LABEL=/12 rhgb quiet
	module /initrd-2.6.15-1.1955_FC5hypervisor.img
title Windows XP
	rootnoverify (hd0,0)
	chainloader +1
Actual results:
Always get 25x80 text console

Expected results:
Expected 37x100 text console for vga=771
