Console font issue when attempting to change framebuffer resolution
I just finished a basic LFS installation tonight, and have spent several hours trying to change the console/framebuffer resolution using the grub configuration tools and files.
The problem I'm having is that while I've managed to configure the grub loader to display in the resolution I want, as soon as it loads the kernel I see nothing at all. I believe that the kernel is unable to display the font that grub is using at the new res.
I copied the files 'ascii.pf2' and 'unicode.pf2' from an Ubuntu 10.04 LiveCD into the /usr/share/grub/ directory, and added the following chunk of code to my /boot/grub/grub.cfg (by editing /etc/grub.d/00_header and running grub-mkconfig):
if loadfont /usr/share/grub/ascii.pf2 ; then
if terminal_output gfxterm; then true ; else
The default language setup for my system is en_CA.ISO-8859-1
I figure I have to setup the /etc/sysconfig/console file, but have no idea what to do...
Any help is greatly appreciated.
