Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 35921
Console screen resolution not holding
Last modified: 2008-05-01 11:38:00 EDT
This is on Red Hat beta v126.96.36.199-75 running on a Chembook 7400 laptop.
CPU PII 400, RAM 160M, built in ATI video.
I have set in lilo vga=1 to get higher resolution console screens as I do
in other RH machines I have. With this beta you can see the screen
change to the high resolution early in the boot process. Then a few
seconds later before it displays press I for interactive boot, it changes
back to 80x25 mode.
Edit /etc/sysconfig/i18n, and change SYSFONT to something that matches
your preferred resolution.
