set console resolution after kernel recompiling
 
I have just recompiled my kernel 2.4.18 and now, when i load slackware my console resolution is 640x480. Before recompiling my resolution in console was 1024x768. Maybe somebody can help me to set my old 1024x768 resolution ?

My video card - GeForce 2 mx400

In lilo i use vga:

# LILO configuration file
# generated by 'liloconfig'
#
# Start LILO global section
boot="/dev/hda"
message = /boot/boot_message.txt
prompt
timeout="1200"
# Override dangerous defaults that rewrite the partition table:
change-rules
reset
# VESA framebuffer console @ 1024x768x64k
vga="792"
# Normal VGA console
# vga = normal

when you say 640x480 do you just mean that the wriing is really large? do you still get the tux logo? if not then you didn't compile the kernel with the framebuffer in it. enable Experiemtal eatures and then tell it to compile the vesa framebuffer into the kernel, then it should work
