    What happens if you append vga=0x314 on boot (just type it in on Grub screen)?

    terwarf,
    i tried it, it doesnt fix the problem,
    the only difference is the size of the letters during the boot (from the dmesg and the various init scripts) which is smaller

    terwarf,

    you were right, thank you very much...

    Solution:

    I added using yast the vga=0x314 parameter in grub
    and after that manually I executed command
    mkinitrd, in the next reboot everything was ok....

    thanks a lot...
