Description Nick Urbanik 1998-12-09 22:12:25 EST
When I boot with vga=extended, the screen starts out in
80x50, then around when the system is mounting the DOS
partition, the screen goes to 80x25.  Not good for a 19"
or 21" monitor.

Is this a problem with /sbin/setsysfont?

I'm not certain where the problem is.  Only with 5.2, not
previous versions.

Sure enough, right after the mounting of the local filesystems, the
screen returns to 80x25 mode.
