Linux console resolution

Note that on some systems (Ubuntu for example) you will need to enable frame buffer

Do this by editing /etc/modules and add the following rules:

vesafb
fbcon

Then in: /boot/grub/menu.lst add:

vga=769 splash="silent"

to the end of a ‘kernel’ option here change ‘769’ to the settings you wish to run at (see below) These are the value’s to choose from:

    | 640x480  800x600  1024x768 1280x1024
----+-------------------------------------
256 |  0x301    0x303    0x305    0x307
32k |  0x310    0x313    0x316    0x319
64k |  0x311    0x314    0x317    0x31A
16M |  0x312    0x315    0x318    0x31B

Or in decimal:

    | 640x480 | 800x600 | 1024x768 | 1280x1024
----+-----------------------------------------
256 |   769       771        773        775
32K |   784       787        790        793
64K |   785       788        791        794
16M |   786       789        792        795
