Description Marty Shannon 2001-02-21 02:02:55 EST
/sbin/setsysfont (& its ancillary /etc/sysconfig files) pay no attention to
a lilo/boot request for 50-line mode for the console (vga=ext).  Since
several other scripts in this package pay attention to /proc/cmdline,
there's no good reason for setsysfont to ignore it.
