What is the command to use at the terminal window to reduce font size so that I can use the yast configure tool to set screen size?
Just a command opensuse 10.0 is rather old now.
But still we can try to correct it .
When are the fonts to big when you run yast in the GUI ?
If so start opensuse in the failsafe mode and than run yast ,
A other possibility is to run sax2 in the failsafe mode
Meaning you do it on the command line
Of course you have to run it as root
