Changing Resolution in Console


I recently changed nvidia drivers from free to non-free. In the process, I lost my high resolution console. I now get the statndard 80 by 20 character Bash shell, although X looks nice. Can someone tell me how to get high resolution in the console again like 1024 by 768.

The output of lsmod is

I'm pretty sure there's a vga module missing. Or maybe, I can use the current nvidia module to change the resolution. If anyone knows where to start, I would appreciate the help. Thank you.

There is no nVidia solution for this, just use VGA framebuffer. With open source nouveau you were using KMS - which cannot be used with blob.

Thank you for your answer Emerson. You are correct, but something else must be going on. I openned my config file for make just to check if I had VGA or VESA drivers built into the kernel. I do. I still don't have a high-res frame buffer though. Anyone know a command to change the resolution manually? If it works, I can add it to the init scripts or at least search for it? BTW, I have made progress in creating a high resolution grub2 boot screen, but the resolution changes back as soon as the kernel is loaded.
Here's my configuration files.
In /etc/defaul/grub
Code:
# If you change this file, run 'update-grub' afterwards to update
# /boot/grub/grub.cfg.
# For full documentation of the options in this file, see:
#   info -f grub -n 'Simple configuration'

GRUB_DEFAULT=0
GRUB_TIMEOUT=30
GRUB_DISTRIBUTOR=`lsb_release -i -s 2> /dev/null || echo Debian`
GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT="quiet"
GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX=""

# Uncomment to enable BadRAM filtering, modify to suit your needs
# This works with Linux (no patch required) and with any kernel that obtains
# the memory map information from GRUB (GNU Mach, kernel of FreeBSD ...)
#GRUB_BADRAM="0x01234567,0xfefefefe,0x89abcdef,0xefefefef"

# Uncomment to disable graphical terminal (grub-pc only)
#GRUB_TERMINAL=console

# The resolution used on graphical terminal
# note that you can use only modes which your graphic card supports via VBE
# you can see them in real GRUB with the command `vbeinfo'
GRUB_GFXMODE=1360x768x32
GRUB_GFXPAYLOAD=1360x768x32

# Uncomment if you don't want GRUB to pass "root=UUID=xxx" parameter to Linux
#GRUB_DISABLE_LINUX_UUID=true

# Uncomment to disable generation of recovery mode menu entries
#GRUB_DISABLE_RECOVERY="true"

# Uncomment to get a beep at grub start
#GRUB_INIT_TUNE="480 440 1"
In /etc/grub.d/51_Linux
Code:
#!/bin/sh -e
echo "Adding Debian Wheezy UUID" >&2
cat << EOF
menuentry "Debian Wheezy UUID" {
    linux /boot/vmlinuz-3.2.51 root=UUID=fadcf9ae-80f4-4a5e-9809-605264a7fc33 ro quiet ata_generic.all_generic_ide=1
    initrd /boot/initrd.img-3.2.51
}
EOF
You can see I added the lines to change the graphics mode.
GRUB_GFXMODE=1360x768x32
GRUB_GFXPAYLOAD=1360x768x32
While the graphics mode is changed in grub2 (which was really cool and unexpected), the changes don't hold during boot. Any guesses?

I solved the problem. It turns out that the graphics mode wasn't supported by my hardware (or at least as far as grub2 can see). I had to play around in the grub command line and find out the supported modes using vbeinfo. I had to edit my /etc/default/grub and /etc/grub.d/00_header files and ulitmately set the gfxpayload variable to 1024x768 before load_video is called. That did the trick.

If anyone is interested in seeing a working configuration, here it is:
/etc/default/grub
Code:
# If you change this file, run 'update-grub' afterwards to update
# /boot/grub/grub.cfg.
# For full documentation of the options in this file, see:
#   info -f grub -n 'Simple configuration'

Note that the environment variables GRUB_GFXPAYLOAD and GRUB_GFXMODE in the /etc/default/grub file do not get set like they are supposed to by the time the script reaches /etc/grub.d/00_header. That's why I set those variable in 00_header. I wonder if that's a bug? One could actually forgo editting the grub file altogether, and simply edit 00_header. Better yet, one can add set gfxpayload=1024x768 directly into one's custom grub boot scripts in the /etc/grub.d directory like so:
/etc/grub.d/50_Linux
Code:
#!/bin/sh -e
echo "Adding Debian Wheezy" >&2 
cat << EOF
menuentry "Debian Wheezy" {
set gfxpayload=1024x768
set root=(hd0,4)
linux /vmlinuz root=UUID=fadcf9ae-80f4-4a5e-9809-605264a7fc33 ro quiet ata_generic.all_generic_ide=1
initrd /initrd.img
}
EOF
I hope this helps anyone who has a similar problem.
