Thread: Extra large font during startup & shutdown

  1. #1

    Default Extra large font during startup & shutdown

    Running Opensuse 11.4 (but had same problem on 11.3). During startup and shutdown, the text messages are displayed using a very large font (characters are > 1 cm high).
    How can I specify the font and font size it uses ? Presumably it is doing a bad job of detecting the monitor (its a Samsung SyncMaster P2250).
    Which config file contains a suitable entry, and what is the entry ?
    Thanks.

    GeForce 7100 card. I have the Nvidia-gfxG02-kmp-desktop driver module, version 260.19.44, which I think is the latest one.

    What does the "vga=...." statement on the boot options line say?

    What's the native resolution of your monitor?
    ° Appreciate my reply? Click the star and let me know why.

    It says vga=0x348
    Where can I find what that means ?
    The resolution of the monitor is 1920 x 1080. Not sure if that's what you meant by 'native' resolution.
