Kernel question?


I just installed gentoo 2006.1 and compiled the kernel. Playing around i added a few other options that i really didnt pay any attention too. However, to my surprise something i did made it so once my kernel loads the terminal font gets small and smooth as if an X-server is running. (which is not even installed). Does anyone know how i could have done this? so that i know how i did it?

thanks

It's probably using a console framebuffer. With it, you can change the resolution of the console.
