Question How to make boot up text + console full screen


Using vector linux.
I had the option on install to make the console full screen but I opted for the safe version on went for 640x480.

Well I'd like to make it fullscreen as I'm using mostly the cli but can't find how.

Also I can't seem to set flux box up so it's my default WM when I type startx. Vasm let's me do it but the change I make in there doesn't actually make it happen, it still loads JWM.

Many thanks
