Ubuntu Server 8.10 displays only 25 lines at a time
I'm running a Ubuntu Server 8.10, the display, unfortunately is only showing 25 lines.
I access the server through a vSphere console but posted here, not on the virtualisation forum, as I think the issue is independent of my monitor or lack of, but I may be wrong! The linux display I see is about 1/4 of my screen size!
I find only having the 25 lines very difficult, particularly since the machine is running a MySQL server and unless I output to a text file even a small query starts to disappear off the top of the screen.
I would be very grateful if someone could help me to set things up so I get a bigger output which can fit more lines on.
The issue is basically just that the resolution for a default console without X is rather low. Why not just use ssh to connect to it once it is up and running to do your queries? I never really much cared for using the vSphere consoles unless really necessary (reboot, no network access, etc.) anyway.
