Question Shell Police VGA


i'd like to have 50 lines of console at boot time inVGA (80x50 instead of the olg good 80x25). I use GRUB and this parameter is not documented at all.

Change your line in /etc/sysconfig/i18n from sun16 to sun08

Then I believe if you put at the end of your kernel line in your grub.conf vga=1

That should do the trick for you.
