http://www.linuxquestions.org/questi...e-font-609125/ raises the issue of how do I set, at boot, the resolution of my consoles (tty's); not just during boot, but for afterwards too.

This got me thinking about a chart of the "vga=" codes that are available.

Googling:
"VGA Resolution" Chart
got these 2 useful answers:

Here is my composite of these charts:
Code:
  VGA Resolution Codes for GRUB & Lilo
--- Depth --
Colors  bits  640x480  800600  1024768  1152864 12801024  16001200
   256    8   vga=769  vga=771   vga=773   vga=353   vga=775    vga=796
 32000    ?   vga=784  vga=787   vga=790   vga= ?    vga=793    vga= ? 
 65000   16   vga=785  vga=788   vga=791   vga=355   vga=794    vga=798
 16.7M   24   vga=786  vga=789   vga=792   vga=795   vga=799
If anyone has a link to a more complete or more authoritative list, or the has any of the missing info., please post it in a comment.

Edit: That means post it in a comment HERE, not as an unreadable PM. TIA
