Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 234019
High resolution vt (vesa?) is unavailable with xen
Last modified: 2009-12-14 15:40:36 EST
Description of problem:
As per summary, as adding vga=791 changes the terminal resolution to 1024x768
when using normal kernel, it does not work with xen one.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. yum install kernel-xen
2. add vga=791 to the boot parameters
3. reboot into xen kernel
Terminal runs at poor VGA resolution
Terminal uses selected vesa mode
It is especially a problem in case of LCD screens, which would otherwise be able
to run at their native resolution.
Please log/attach your grub.conf entry for this kernel.
